Racing tires on a truck? Yes, it is actually quite a common thing. No, you do not have to participate in street races when you have race tires on your truck. However, there are some good reasons/benefits for putting Pirelli race tires on a passenger truck.
Race tires are designed to last longer than regular tires, and with good reason. Race tires spend their lives burning rubber on a track underneath the fastest land machines on the planet. In their normal capacity, they can survive up to five hundred laps around a track going a hundred-plus miles an hour. On a passenger truck and any other road going no more than the fastest speed limit allowed, they last even longer.
How often has your truck spun out on dirt or gravel? What about ice or snow? Chances are, your standard tires got you and your truck stuck more often than you would like. Racing tires are designed to grip the ground or the road, regardless of any other materials that land on the track. Put those same tires on your truck and you get equally good traction, and make fewer calls to a towing company to get you out of a ditch.
Greater Heat Resistance
Hot asphalt in the desert is the closest thing your truck will ever come to burnt tire rubber. However, when your truck is sporting racing tires, these tires keep their cool. Even if you do drive through the American Southwest for miles and miles, racing tires barely feel the heat. Less melted rubber means means thicker, hardier tires with long-lasting tread.
Less Expense over Time
Initially, you may look at the price of racing tires, and think, "No way." Yet, when you take all of the above into consideration, it means that you will not have to replace your racing tires every other season or every other year either. That means that you pay extra up front so you do not pay double or triple to replace your tires on down the road. It is akin to buying the next five to ten years' worth of replacement tires in a single tire purchase.
The Guarantee and the Warranty
Racing tires are performance tires, which means they have a better guarantee and a much better warranty. You pay for a premium product, and that means you get better coverage. Clearly, racing tires are worth investing in and worth putting on your passenger truck.Share

Hello, my name is Mack Johnson. Welcome to my website about automobile tires. Although a lot of time and money goes into the improvement of the engine, transmission and suspension systems on classic and modern automobiles, an equal amount of thought must go to the tires to really perfect the build. The tires keep the vehicle glued to the road during hard acceleration, corning and braking maneuvers. My site will cover all the different tire options available for each automobile type on the road today. I welcome you to come by often to learn all about tires for your car, truck or SUV. Thanks.
