If you’ve got a sedan, minivan, SUV or crossover, there are so many choices for tires out there that it can be downright confusing. Some drivers want a little more out of their vehicles, though, and for spirited driving styles, performance tires can be a great fit. At Tire Technic, we offer a selection of performance tires, and are more than happy to help you pick out the right performance tire for your budget.
If you’re considering performance tires for your car, minivan, SUV or crossover, here’s one important caveat to bear in mind. The softer tread compounds of performance tires are derived from racing tires and deliver excellent traction, but they also tend to harden and stiffen up at lower temperatures. Like their close counterparts “summer tires,” performance tires shouldn’t be used when temperatures are below 40 degrees F, or 4-5 degrees Celsius. Lower temperatures drastically reduce their traction and effectiveness.
Performance tires are designed to get a car around the corners quicker, with truly phenomenal grip. The key to that kind of cornering ability is in the tread compound. Performance tires use a softer, “stickier” tread formulation that offers traction properties that all-season tires can’t begin to match. The downside is these tires will wear quicker than an All Season Tire.
