Many drivers like sporty rides - especially, in motorsport events. These are generally beyond the capabilities of regular tyres, which is the reason manufacturers create specialised 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. They are designated to aid one to get the ultimate performance out of their car, particularly during a competitive race. The combination of sidewall construction, specific race compounds, and tread patterns is meant to facilitate first-class stability and traction in contact with the road. These give you balance, in spite of the speed, ensuring the smoothness of the ride. Most racing tyres have very little to no tread at all (so-called “racing slick”) and are sized not to match the sizes approved in car papers. On mytyres.co.uk, we also offer a selection of street authorised tyres. They may be used on wet surfaces; however they have significantly worse driving properties during rain than regular tyres - so drive carefully!
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. Due to the use of state-of-the-art technology, one can equip his/her car with uniform tyres, engineered for deluxe sport cars. You could also consider getting a set of radial tyres. Generally, these feature a flexible sidewall that safeguards the interior of the tyre while ensuring a comfortable drive.
First class manufacturers, such as Michelin and Dunlop, are constantly developing new technologies to make sure that the extreme load does not significantly impact the tyre's service life. For more information about each tyre, go on mytyres.co.uk, and choose the product that fits your car’s individual requirements.
