Sport tires (ultra high performance tires) are approved for use on public highways and comply with all statutory requirements and safety criteria. The design of the tire is also geared towards use on racing circuits (driver safety training courses, sports driving schools, Club Sport events) and provides distinct advantages here in terms of dry grip and wear compared to conventional road tires.
The major features are a reduced tread depth and a special tread pattern and carcass.
The design features of this sports tire result
in the following effects compared with other
summer tires when used under normal
– Sport tires have a smaller tread depth, and thus can reach their wear limit sooner.
As with all tires, the attainable mileage depends on the individual driving style and the conditions of use.

lane grooves). Sport tires have a lower tread depth than normal tires and you must therefore adapt speed accordingly
when driving on wet surfaces.
