“ Let’s be the same wound if we must bleed.
Let’s fight side by side, even if the enemy
is ourselves: I am yours, you are mine. ”
trying to get a hold of an extra set of wheels and tires to use for track days on the car, and my dad shows me a set with all-weather tires that are going cheap. He’s saying I can take them racing, that the only thing that matters is the softness rating on them and not the tread pattern or…
I’m not sure about the direct affect on performance due to a different tread pattern, but, in theory, given two ties of the same softness and dimension, the tire with the most surface area in contact with the road would offer the most grip.
I assume that the basic difference in all weather and performance treads is the amount of surface area, all-weather having less to better channel shit from under the tire.
As far as the difference in a 255/45 and a 255/50, it’s the ratio of sidewall to the width of the tread so the 45 would have a shorter sidewall and in theory be more rigid.
