High Performance Tyres

High performance car tyres, also known as UHP (ultra-high performance) tyres are designed to improve grip and provide greater handling for premium and sports cars.

Typically used at high speeds, high performance tyres are wider to help stick to the road when cornering providing greater stability for sport and racing cars. The tyre compound is created specifically to give superior performance and better braking distances when compared to a standard car tyre.

Ultra-high performance tyres have a softer compound, unique tread pattern and lower profiles and in turn, this gives greater handling, precise steering and less noise when driving on the roads in Royston.

Are high performance tyres right for me?

UHP tyres aren’t suitable for all vehicles or drivers, but if you require speed, precision and responsiveness, high performance tyres could the right tyre choice for you.

Things to consider when buying UHP tyres with John R Ford & Sons Ltd:

  • Tyre treadwear – due to the softer compound of the tyre, the tyre tread may wear quicker.
  • Fuel consumption – Your car might be less efficient when it comes to fuel consumption when driving on high performance tyres.
  • Cost – In most cases ultra-high performance tyres cost more than standard car tyres.
