If you have a sports car or do plenty of highway driving, then you want to consider investing into high-performance tires. High-performance tires typically use a softer rubber compound to increase the traction. This increase of traction helps you keep on the road when making tight turns. The softer rubber unfortunately makes the softer thread wear away quicker. You’ll need to replace high-performance tires more often than other types of tires. You should avoid high-performance tires in bad weather.
