Japanese company, Valino manufactures high quality drift tires, designed with the help of well known drivers such as Naoki Nakamura, Katsuhiro Ueo, Noato Suenaga and Tetsuya Hibino. Developed initially for drifting competitions in Japan, Valino semi-slick tires are available in two ranges, Pergea and Greeva, with several Treadwear ratings, optimized for different levels of performance and longevity.
Launched in 2019, the brand already has many victories to its name, in D1GP, Formula Drift, Drift Masters GP and in many other competitions in Japan, in the United States and in Europe.
Please note : Valino recommends using Pergea and Greeva tires with a cold pressure of 2 bars. Unlike most other brands, Valino tires are designed to provide a constant grip, which varies very little with pressure. Thus, you will only observe a slight difference in grip between Valino tires at 1 bar or 2.5 bar, for example. This advantage exclusive to Valino allows you to have constant performance when the tire heats up and its pressure increases.
For your safety, Valino specifies that the pressure use range for the Pergea and Greeva is from 1 bar minimum, to 3.8 bars maximum. Valino recommends starting your drift sessions with tires at 2 bars cold, then slightly adjusting the pressure throughout the session, depending on the conditions of use (vehicle power, type of circuit, outside temperature, weather conditions, etc.).
Valino Pergea tires
The Pergea range has been designed to offer a high grip, guaranteeing an exceptional level of control. The Valino Pergea semi-slicks are aimed at competitors and drifters using vehicles with high power, and are available in three different rubber hardnesses : ultra-soft Pergea 08SP (Treadwear 140 - TW140), Pergea 08RS (TW160), and Pergea 08R for medium hardness (TW200). These variations ensure an optimal response in any kind of situation.
Valino Greeva Tires
The Greeva range has been developed to offer maximum fun and an incredible lifespan : "More Fun & More Life ". Fully designed to withstand drifting efforts and validated by Team Orange on the Ebisu circuits, the Valino Greeva semi-slicks really let you drift up to 10 times longer (compared to a conventional road tire). Their high treadwear rating (TW360) guarantees exceptional resistance to overheating and regular wear to the last millimeters of rubber. Thanks to the Valino Greeva tires, you can finally enjoy your track days on the track, and not in the paddocks for frequent tire changes!
Valino tires are designed and optimized for drifting only. They are not approved for road use and we do not recommend using them for grip racing.
