Tire Types

Tire is a ring-shaped vehicle component that covers the wheel's rim to protect it and enable better vehicle performance. Most tires, such as those for automobiles and bicycles, provide traction between the vehicle and the road while providing a flexible cushion that absorbs shock.

Manufactures have created many different types of tires with various features and functionality. Some general categories that tires fall under are:-

All-Season Tire :-
 These tires are designed to perform well in all major driving conditions: rain, snow, ice and dry. All-season tires are the most common type of tire and are considered a "one size fits all" tire. However, this tire doesn't perform well in extreme winter conditions.

Winter Tire:-
 These tires provide superior traction and control when driving on snowy or icy roads. They're also designed to stay soft and pliable at low temperatures, which make for a safer, more comfortable ride over icy and irregular surfaces.

Performance Tire :-
These tires are designed specifically for speed, superior handling and maximum dry-road grip. However, performance tires typically cost more and have a shorter life.

Touring Tire :-
 These tires are designed for a smooth, quiet and comfortable ride. They generally have a higher speed rating and shorter stopping distance. They handle well on dry or wet pavement, but aren't designed for winter driving.
