Performance cars are primarily designed for high speed and a more ‘sporty’ driving style, as such they require special high performance tyres. These tyres a normally classed as “low profile tyres”. Low profile tyres are by design tyres with a small sidewall. They have less flex or roll than standard car tyres and are more responsive. This design allows for superior handling at higher speeds or control when cornering. They feature a softer rubber compound for improved traction. A well designed high performance tyre will be lightweight and offer a lower rolling resistance; it will be optimised for braking and have broader groves for water dispersion. Types of performance cars include coupes, muscle cars and sports cars. Owners of performance cars may frequent the track and have a specific set of rims with track specific tyres.
Most people who require tyres for a performance car need tyres that will grip well in all weather conditions, handle high speed driving and braking, but also be able to handle the power that their performance car puts out. Tyre options are varied and it does depend on your circumstances.
