The tires,needless to say, are key components on the car, can drastically affect the performance of the car, both negative and positive. In fact it is the only element of the machine that comes into direct contact with the ground, they filter what happens below them.
Precisely for this reason, the right choice of tires must be taken in an accurate and reasoned way, as it can have a rather heavy influence on the dynamism of the car, from performance to safety.
Over the years, the major tire manufacturers have worked hard to create tires different, each suitable for a certain type of use and certain atmospheric conditions. In fact, based on the type of use we are going to make of our vehicle, we will have to fit tires suitable for that particular situation.
If this is not the case, we will risk wearing our set of tires too long, not suitable for the use we are making of them or, in the worst case, lead us into dangerous situations that should be avoided.
The right tire makes the difference, and you always have to choose it by evaluating our driving style and the use we make of the vehicle
Still on the subject of tires suitable for a specific use, for all fans of sport driving and track days, there is a tire that is on the razor's edge between road use and the one on the track, thetires semi-slick.
The tires semislick in fact are a type of tires that come, without any filter, from the racing world, but distinguished by the fact that they are also approved for normal road traffic.
This means that these are tires high performance, suitable for all those who are used to taking their car on the track, and love to have fun pushing the gas pedal with their right foot.
Although these are tires that give their best in the racing field, they do not disdain "normal" road use and, more importantly, they can be mounted in a completely regular way even in circulation on public roads.
The semi-slickrunner are tires with a's soul, for purely track use, with the only advantage of being even on the road.
In fact, just look at the compound with which theseare made tires, very soft and with a very sporty profile, which returns a very high driving precision and trajectories, as well as an extremely higher resistance to lateral stresses than an excellent summer tire. .
tires semislick represent the right compromise, which excellently combines the high performance required on the track, with the comfort and safety essential for road use.
In fact they are the best choice, economically speaking, for those who need a train of usable rubbers in both of these contexts, without having to be forced to do the continuous switch between tires traditional road tires semi-slick track whenever you decide to do a track day.
Of course, in road use the difference compared to a road tire is felt, in fact it filters much less the roughness present on the road, the rolling is more perceptible and, in the case of wet or wet road surface, they are less efficient, having to pay more attention during the guide.
This in addition to his semi- slick during the winter, absolutely not recommended and dangerous.
But despite this they are the most balanced choice, especially considering that the car on which this type of tire will be fitted will not be the car used every day to go to work or to go shopping.
