Racing Tires

The modern performance tire dates back to the early 1980s, when Chevrolet equipped the Corvette with Goodyear’s then-revolutionary Gatorback tire. The Formula One-inspired tire was designed with a low-profile sidewall and large tread blocks for superior traction in dry weather, and a nylon cap over the tire’s steel belts. The nylon cap helped to hold the tire together at high speeds and added stiffness to the sidewall. The Gatorback received a V speed rating, meaning it was good to 149 mph.

Today, manufacturers have realized that performance-style tires mean better handling, braking response, cornering and steering. Moreover, the design of performance tires is a good fit for antilock brakes and stability control on modern vehicles. The downside of performance tires is that, with heightened performance margins, ride and service life are compromised; that’s why there’s such a selection of UHP, performance, touring-performance and other tires available today.

Tires are a truly integral part of automotive design today – critical aspects of a tire’s design, such as height, rolling resistance and performance are taken into account in the programming of a car’s onboard computer. Deviating too far from those original-equipment tire specs can result in a squirrelly-handling car, or worse. If your car was designed for performance tires, you should stay pretty close to those specs…your car will thank you for it.
