Track and competition tires are designed for racing enthusiasts to maximize performance on racetracks, while some are also suitable for street use. These tires are not meant for winter driving. Using slick type tread designs and specialized rubber compounds, competition tires are build for ultimate acceleration and cornering, but have modest wet capability and short tread wear life.
