December 7, 2007, Newsletter Issue #66: The Trade Off

Tip of the Week

High tire speed ratings are well and good, but the average driver should question whether the trade off of comfort and noise level is worth the additional speed potential. With increased performance comes decreased comfort. This is acceptable in the world of racing, but the average driver and even many custom car buffs feel comfort is just as important. High noise factors in performance tires can send some drivers fleeing for the safety of a more moderate-performance model. You may not be able to reach "hair on fire" speeds with a lower tire speed rating, but you will arrive at your destination in comfort and ease. Check out the consumer report and review websites for a good sampling of experiences with different tire speed ratings.
