Racing & Semi-Slick
Semi-slicks and circuit tires, high performance tires!
Racing and semi-slick tires are types of tires designed for sports use. Compared to standard street and highway tires, they usually feature a smoother tread with fewer grooves to provide a superior asphalt contact surface in dry conditions and stiffer sidewalls to prevent excessive flexing during cornering.
These tires can be street legal or restricted to track use (grip or drift driving). Designed for pure performance, they must provide an excellent grip but also exhibit a progressive behavior before sliding with a sufficient transition phase for the driver to be able to act correctly on the steering wheel and pedals.
Thanks to their features, these tires promote traction and cornering speed, and reduce braking distances. In return, they have a relatively short lifespan compared to conventional sports tires.
Depending on the model, different types of rubber can be used, ranging from a very soft compound for maximum grip but quick wear to a very hard compound for slower wear but less grip. The tire should then be chosen according to the motorsport discipline, but also the asphalt temperature and abrasiveness.
