Many drivers like sporty ride - especially, in motorsport events. These are generally beyond the capabilities of regular tyres, which is the reason manufacturers create specialized racing tyres for quick rounds on racing tracks. Racing tyres significantly affect the driving behaviour of a car and may not be used in regular traffic.
Most racing tyres have very little to no tread at all (so-called “racing slick”), and are sized to not match the sizes approved in car papers. On mytyres.co.uk, we also offer a selection of street authorized tyres. They may be used on wet surfaces, however they have significantly worse driving properties during rain than regular tyres - so drive carefully!
Tyres under extreme load
Racing tyres are made from a special rubber compound, which is only natural considering the very high demands on them. The traction on the road must be at maximum to form the famous adhesion effect, as seen in high-performance racing events. First class manufacturers such as Michelin and Dunlop, are constantly developing new technologies to ensure that the extreme load does not significantly impact the tyre's service life.
