Radial Performance Tires — For Comfortable And Easy Drive

In the passenger car segment radial performance tires are a perfect example of rubber compound research and design success. Radial performance tire is strong on dry and wet surfaces, and very effective while cornering and even braking. These performance tires perform under intense speed, handling and braking conditions, and are designed to match the speed capabilities of the world's fastest cars. There are many reputed companies which provide high performance radial tires for almost every type of vehicle. Some of the most trusted names are Yokohama, Goodyear, BFGoodrich, Nitto and Michilin. Michelin’s all season high performance tires exploit advanced tread compounds and tread geometry to perform in water, snow, ice, sand and muck from beneath your wheels, leaving you with wider and stronger road surface contact. You stay in control and get out of harm's way.

Actually radial is type of tire that's constructed with the reinforcing belts sideways under the tread rather than lengthwise. This makes the tire more flexible which reduces rolling resistance to improve fuel economy. Basically these tires provide superior traction, reliable handling, and deliver total vehicle control. A radial tire can be identified by looking for the letter "R" in the size designation on the tire's sidewall.

Radial tire engineering technologies offer exotic formulations depending upon your driving needs and vehicle type. For example, many drivers have turned to steel belted radial tires in order to get that additional strength and safety factor that steel, plasticizers, nylon and even Kevlar cord can deliver i.e. BFGoodrich’s Radial T/A tire aimed specifically at hot rodders and car customizers. The new size, 155/80R15, is a perfect fit for the front axle of many of today's custom hot rodders and customize vehicles. The design and engineering essence of radial tires springs from technologists focusing on introducing steel plies running perpendicular or across the crown.

In order to further strengthen this radial tire, engineers introduce additional connector plies running circumferentially so that a reinforced cross-hatch design emerges. These new tires from BFGoodrich combine technological expertise with vast motorsports experience, delivering a high-performance tire for every type of vehicle from ultra-high performance tuner vehicles, sports cars and SUVs to the hottest sport trucks, pickups and rock-crawling rigs in the world. Performance tires perform under intense speed, handling and braking conditions, and are designed to match the speed capabilities of the world's fastest cars, light trucks and SUVs.
