Racing tires are used on high performance vehicles and provide more traction than standard tires. These tires differ from standard tires due to the fact that their tread has been reduced or removed, in order to provide more ground surface area for the tire's rubber to cover. Racing tires are typically used on vehicles that make very sharp turns or accelerate aggressively from an idle position. Due to having reduced or removed tread, any amount of moisture or other debris on the road's surface will greatly impact a racing tire's traction. If deep tread were used, hydroplaning and traction loss would be inevitable, due to moisture or debris being on the road's surface. Racing tires provide excellent traction in dry conditions only.
Racing tires are very popular among racing leagues and racing enthusiasts who race on a track. Since there is little or no tread on these tires, they are illegal on public roads in most places. In order to make the vehicle street legal, racing enthusiasts use "cheater" slicks. "Cheater" slicks are like standard slick tires, however, these tires have the minimum amount of tread required to be legal. Racing tires are popular in the performance automotive industry due to fact that they enhance the "look" of the vehicle and their ability to perform.
In order to provide the maximum amount of traction, racing tires are made out of softer rubber than standard tires. The softness of the racing tire's rubber allows the tire to stretch and conform when exposed to tension from the road's surface. This rubber wears much faster than standard tires, therefore it will need to be replaced often. Due to the rate at which the racing tire wears, it is common for a car racing team to replace racing tires multiple times throughout a race. Racing tires are a valuable tool necessary for high performance and maximum traction.
