Do tires get better or worse with wear? What's the difference between a new tire and a worn tire? As a tire wears, you may be surprised to learn that its dry performance actually improves. Braking distances tend to get shorter, and cornering grip tends to increase.

The opposite, however, happens in the wet. As the tire nears the wear bars, braking distances increase and cornering grip decreases? Well, why is this? And what can you do to prevent wear from ruining a tire’s performance? To find out, the video below has all the details!

  • I would like to see a comparison between unidirectional “aquatread” type tires vs asymmetrical and fully symmetrical wet and dry road tires . Do wet tires perform the same in torrential rain (like 2-3 inches of water across the road) as a heavy drizzle coating the road in a film of water and road oils ?

  • Thanks for the video. It had quite a few things in it that I didn’t know. Never too old to learn.

  • This is purely logic, and i didn't need a 6min vid for that.. why do you think they drive slicks in racing but when the track is wet change to tires with tread patterns?
