By HERBERT SHULDINER The high-performance street tires of today are equal
in quality to the racing tires of a few years ago," former world racing champion
Jackie Stewart told me as we belted up at Goodyear's test track in Akron, Ohio.
Stewart was preparing to find the wet traction limits of a new set of tires for the
Chevrolet Camaro. To drive his point home, he proceeded to click off a half-
dozen hot laps through a flooded handling loop. I had to hold on tightly as
Stewart whipped the ...

When your tires stick to the pavement, your car goes fast. It's that simple. Sort of.
Race tires don't need to last very long — and they don't. They don't even need to

race, and protouring all operate under different demands and conditions. For
example, road-racing tires operate at sustained high speeds, under high loads,
and therefore the tire is subjected to a lot of friction and heat. On the other hand, a
high-performance street tire typically operates at low to moderate speeds and
