High Performance Tires

High Performance TIRES

High Performance tires are designed for high speed applications. They are street legal tire models, manufactured mostly for sport vehicles. They come with three distinctive speed ratings, which categorize a tire as a High Performance model. These speed ratings are W, Y and Z. Most W and Y rated tires are also ZR models. All of this information can be found on the tire’s sidewall.

These tires are made with a stronger structure and use softer compound materials. The structure needs to be lightweight to prevent heat build-up, while also maintaining the ideal tire shape under the high speed driving pressure. The compound’s soft rubber materials increase the surface traction during the high speed performance and help equally distribute the driving heat along the tread area to maximize the driving safety levels.

High Performance tires are known for their high speed performing ability and controllability. These tires have a special construction, which most manufacturers follow. The high speed models utilize a wider contact patch, a lightweight structure and narrow sidewalls to ensure constant surface contact even during high speed drives. This allows the tire to improve the steering responsiveness and the driving stability at high speeds, ensuring the driver’s control over the vehicle throughout its performance. The enhanced durability and handling ability guarantee better performing security, enabling the high speed vehicles to perform at their best high speed ability.

Controllability – High Performance tires use a wider contact patch, lightweight structures and narrow sidewalls to increase the tire’s controllability at high speeds.

Compound – A softer compound is used to manufacture High Performance tires as these compounds keep an ideal surface grip even during its high speed performance.

Speed Rating – These tires are designated with a W, Y or ZR speed rating, depending on their levels of high speed durability, but all W and Y rated tires are also ZR.
