Per­for­mance Tyres

Fast Car - - TOP 10 FAST ROAD MODS -

This is prob­a­bly the 4768th time I’ve writ­ten this sen­tence over the years but it still rings true – the rel­a­tively small con­tact patches on your tyres are the only part of your car to ac­tu­ally con­nect it to the tar­mac. It is there­fore pretty im­por­tant to con­sider your rub­ber if you don’t want to end up up­side down in a ditch on a rainy win­ter’s night.

Yes, those Ko­jak Wan­gu­lang Neme­sis AK-47 re­mould jobs may look like a bar­gain, but your pride and joy, and let’s face it your arse, de­serves bet­ter.

In mo­tor­sport get­ting the right tyres is ev­ery­thing, and it’s no dif­fer­ent for the road. But the best re­source you’re ever go­ing to have for find­ing the best brand, model and fit­ment for your ap­pli­ca­tion is the car cul­ture com­mu­nity. And one tyre that is caus­ing quite a stir at the mo­ment is the Maxxis Vic­tra Sport 5 (https://www. maxxis.co.uk/cat­a­log/tyre-52-1-vic­tra-sport-5-vs5). In test­ing this high-per­for­mance sum­mer tyre has ri­valled class lead­ers from the likes of Pirelli and Miche­lin but is a damn sight more af­ford­able! Most of all, never un­der­es­ti­mate the im­pact that a de­cent set of tyres can make to per­for­mance, han­dling and safety. Buy with your head first, and your wal­let sec­ond.
