Passenger - Extreme Performance Summer

Extreme-performance tires offer the highest level of street performance. What they lack in comfort and wet condition handling, they more than make up for with maximum dry-grip performance. While these are not specifically track tires, they are best used in situations where competition-level performance is needed. Using them for everyday short-trip driving is like using dynamite to kill flies.

Passenger - Premium Touring All-Season

  • 13 to 18 fitments available
  • Generally more comfortable and lower noise
  • Lower fuel use than UHP tires
  • Not ideal on high performance vehicles (Porsche, BMW)

These tires feature substantially more gripping power in wet conditions, along with the smooth ride and low rolling resistance of their summer counterparts. Although many do have somewhat more light winter capability than UHP all-seasons, for example, most of them are still not winter-capable in any real sense.

Grand Touring All-Season tires are often used as Original Equipment and place more emphasis on handling and high-speed capabilities than Standard Touring tires

These tires are designed to blend a performance tire's appearance with a passenger tire's smooth, quiet ride. Grand Touring tires are often used as Original Equipment and place more emphasis on handling and high-speed capabilities than high performance tires.

They are also almost always less expensive than their higher-performance cousins.

Passenger - High Performance Summer

Passenger - Ultra High Performance Summer

  • Typically 18 and above
  • Designed with sporty handling in mind
  • Ideal for performance cars
  • OE fitment for margues like Porsche, BMW

UHP summer tires are generally low-profile, high-steering, response monsters made for cornering the hottest cars at the hottest speeds. They will almost always carry “V” or higher speed ratings. Their wet conditions capabilities will be more toward the useless side.

UHP tires can handle the extra horsepower of sports cars, but they’re pricier and don’t last as long as regular all-season tires.

Average predicted tread life is 35000 miles.

UHP tires have been around for decades but were traditionally found on high-end sports cars. Now more and more manufacturers are offering them on performance-tuned versions of mainstream vehicles, such as the Buick Regal GS, Chrysler 300S, and Ford Fiesta ST. Even the Chevrolet Impala and Lincoln MKZ come in versions that can be outfitted with UHP tires
