Summit Racing Equipment Now Offers Winter Tires For Performance and Passenger Vehicles
The snow is starting to fly, but there is no need to panic about having the traction to handle bad weather driving. Summit Racing offers a large selection of winter performance tires that can handle the snow, slush, and other gunk winter throws at you.
These aren’t your dad’s snow tires, either. Modern winter tires provide the traction needed to dig through snow, plus excellent handling and braking performance in winter conditions. That’s just the ticket if you want (or have) to drive your performance car during the cold and flu season.
Here are a few of the performance winter tires available at Summit Racing:
Bridgestone Blizzak Tires
The famous Blizzak tires feature Bridgestone’s multi-pore compound that creates "biting" action as the tires wear. Plus, the pores absorb the thin layer of water that often develops on ice, resulting in greater driving and braking force. Advanced 3-D sipe technology delivers reliable performance in snow, slush, and icy conditions as well as enhancing grip when the pavement is dry.
Michelin X-Ice Xi2 Tires
These tires feature Michelin’s FleX-Ice silica-based compound with multiple sipes and micro-pumps that deliver optimized grip and braking on ice. X-Ice Xi2 tires also feature deep Cross-Z sipes and a step groove design for enhanced mobility in deep snow, plus a wide contact patch with supporting knobs that provide stability on wet and dry roads.
Falken Eurowinter HS439 Tires
These tires have a special silica tread compound that ensures tread flexibility while maximizing tread life. Plus, the multi-angled sipes help create additional biting edges, which allow for better control on ice and in snow. The symmetrical tread design provides excellent performance across multiple driving conditions. Circumferential grooves evacuate water, slush, and packed snow to provide outstanding winter traction.
Summit Racing also offers winter tires for trucks and SUVs, plus studdable tires for areas that need that extra edge in really deep snow (check local laws before ordering studdable tires).
