Performance Tyres

As engine power increases and car makers produce more and more sports cars and hot hatches, car tyre makers have to keep pace.

All tyre makers produce sports tyres with speed ratings of Y & Z, but speed ratings are not the only factor in producing a performance tyre. Lower profile tyres improve sidewall stiffness and help improve traction in corners. Wider tyres give more grip as a larger part of the tyre is in contact with the road at any one time.

Here is a list of a some popular sports cars and suitable tyre choices.

Subaru Impreza WRX : Toyo Proxes T1 S

Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VIII : Yokohama AO46

BMW M3 : Continental Sport Contact M3

Audi TT : Pirelli PZERO NERO
