The Lexani LXUHP-207 offers tight, continuous, and consistent cornering, as well as exceptional high-speed performance in all dry conditions. It features four longitudinal grooves allowing for efficient water channeling, improving wet road capabilities. This V-shaped tread pattern improves high-speed performance, wet traction, and braking efficiency.

Cooper Evolution Sport tires

For use on passenger cars in warmer climates, Cooper's Evolution Sport is a performance tire with an asymmetrical tread pattern that improves handling and traction. When driving on wet roads, the big shoulders of the Evolution Sport put more rubber on the road to improve cornering ability, and wide grooves drain water out of the tread to lessen the chance of hydroplaning. For a peaceful, comfortable ride, an optimized structure reduces vibrations and noise from the road.

The Cooper Evolution Sport has a good SimpleScore of 7.9 because of its great handling, reliable traction, and solid longevity.
