High Performance Tires
High performance tires such as Goodyear and Michelin are a good buy, and safety investment. These all-season versatility tires will drive equally well in warm dry conditions, or wet and icy conditions with excellent snow traction. While you don’t necessarily need high performance tires on your vehicle to drive it, the bit of added cost will provide quite a bit of benefit to you and help keep your vehicle on the road regardless of the conditions under which you are forced to drive.
Goodyear has been particularly important to the evolution of high performance tires. It was in the 1980’s that Goodyear placed their Gatorback tire on the Chevrolet Corvette. It has low profile sidewalls, large tread blocks and steel belts to hold the tire composition at high speeds. It also became an instant hit and was the first modern performance tire in America. Since then other companies such as Michelin have come out with their own all-season versatility tires and ones built specifically for snow traction that are able to be fitted to most vehicles.
In fact, many vehicles already come equipped with high performance tires as part of the standard new vehicle package. This is because high performance tires add beneficial aspects to car steering and braking and safety agencies rate them highly whether you are driving a family car or racing on the track. These tires do cost more, but they are very advantageous to the consumer and the technology has improved overall road safety dramatically since the first high performance tire was released to the general public.
