As with most things in life, car tyres come in many different shapes, sizes and price. And also like most other things, the best will rise to the top. In New Zealand we are lucky enough to have several high quality tyre manufacturing companies available to us, including Michelin, Pirelli and Bridgestone. These companies don’t just make tyres for the sports racing, but they also design and manufacture high quality performance tyres for the public.

“Every car drives easier with performance tyres as their contact with the road”

As all good mechanics know, it doesn’t matter how perfectly tuned your engine is, no matter what make your car is or the price of it, the performance of your vehicle will always come down to your tyres. If you’re really into your cars, and want to get the most out of your vehicle, then you’ll be looking for performance type over the usual, everyday ones.

Performance tyres are specially designed to have a lower and stiffer profile side wall and larger treads. This leads to a better grip. Some may even have a nylon cap over the steel belts to hold it in place at high speeds. Originally designed for sports racing, they have made their way into mainstream for public consumption. Every car drives easier with performance tyres as their contact with the road. The advances in technology of modern day tyres is incredible and it’s improving every year. Performance ones handle better, react faster and work more efficiently with today’s modern cars.
