Most things in life come in many different shapes, sizes and prices, and of course, car tyres are no exception. And also like most other things in life, the best will beat the rest to the top of the pile.


We are lucky enough here in New Zealand to have a few high quality tyre manufacturers available to the public, such as 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 public use.


As any good mechanic will tell you, it doesn’t matter what make your car is, how much it cost or how fast it can go, 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 tyres over the usual, everyday tyres.


Performance tyres are specially designed tyres that 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 the type 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 point with the asphalt. The advances in technology of modern day tyres is incredible and it’s improving every year. Performance tyres handle better, react faster and work more efficiently, especially with today’s ultra-modern vehicles.


So if you are considering taking your car to the next level, then give us a call. We can help you with the tough decisions when it comes to which tyres to look into. If you’ve any questions or queries about performance tyres, we’ll try our best to help. If you’ve bought the tyres, and just need someone to fit them or a professional to look them over, then we can do that too. Call us today to book an appointment!
