Grip Tyre Softener,  Northants. UK
Grip Tyre Softener is a unique tyre treatment which penetrates the surface and softens the rubber. It is effective on all kinds of performance tyres, wet or dry. The results on treated tyres are dramatic. Not only are new tyres made softer and stickier but previously discarded tyres are given a new lease of life.

Kumho Tyres Europe                     Kumho Tyres USA
Not a giant tyre manufacturer like some of the other companies here but well known nevertheless. Kumho has a big involvement in motorsport. The site is easy to navigate and contain motorsport tires as well road tyres, although it is not stated if the motorsport tires are road legal. The USA Kumho site is more useful, the spec sheets for the tires are comprehensive and informative contains info such as tyre diameter compatible wheel sizes, pressures, tyre weight as well as competitors compatible tyres.

Matador Tyres
Sponsors of the radical championship and is involved in the British Rally Championship. Site has basic tire sizes.

Michelin Performance Road Tyres                   Michelin Motorsport Tyres
One of the performance tyre manufacturers involved in Formula 1 (F1). The motorsport tyre link points to their motorsport range of tires which are NOT homologated for road use. However the table does provide useful information stating the tire widths that will fit a wheel of a certain width. A nice touch if your looking to maximise the grip of your car without buying a new set of wheels. Motorsport site also features road legal race tyres. The High Performance range of Michelin tires, the Michelin Pilot series (Pilot Exalto and Pilot Sport) are well respected high performance road tires.

Possible the most famous performance tyre manufacturer in the world with the most famous slogan "power is nothing without control". Their performance tyres are regularly referred to by EVO Magazine as some of the best performance tires you can buy, with the Pirelli P Zero Corsa and P Zero Nero being the target of most of their praises. Pirelli don't offer a road legal track day cut slick but the P Zero Corsa is a track day biased tyre. Pirelli tyres can be bought from Tire Dealers and Tire Suppliers throughout the UK as well as in their newly opened chain of Pirelli Performance Centres.

Major tyre manufacturer Toyo are in a big name in the modified car market in Britain. Their ProxesT1-s and T1-R are bordering on the default choice when fitting large after market alloy wheels. For out and out performance in the dry their R888 is rapidly gaining in popularity and if your willing to sacrifice wet weather handling this could be the tyre for you. However this tyre provides marginal grip in the wet as it is designed mainly for circuit use. With BMW M3 CSL running on similarly comprised tyre for the road, this type of rubber is becoming looked upon as acceptable for road use. Toyo have tyre dealers and tyre suppliers throughout the UK.

Uniroyal Tyres
