High and Ultra-High Performance (UHP) Sport Tires

Hugging corners, zipping through straightaways, and adding safety to every drive with shorter stopping distances takes the right type of tires. Especially when you drive a high-performance vehicle. Ultra-high performance (UHP) sport tires do the job right with wider, smoother tread blocks, and a tread pattern with shallow, straight grooves to keep more of your tires in contact with the road.

Our pros can help you find the perfect performance tires with the right speed rating and other features you need. Learn more about speed ratings here.

What to Consider When Buying Performance Tires

Depending on what you drive and the type of driving you like to do, performance and ultra-high performance sport tires offer a lot of benefits. These include:

  • Exceptional traction on dry and wet roads. However, they are not designed for snow, ice, or mud.
  • Responsive handling for cornering and stopping confidence.
  • Added comfort and a quiet ride for some of today’s performance vehicles.
  • Good looks that accentuate your sports car or performance vehicle.
What’s the Difference?

Choosing between high-performance and ultra-high-performance tires comes down to what you drive and what you want from your tires.

  • Performance Tires balance tread life with a high level of handling and grip.
  • Ultra-high Performance Tires give you extra grip. You’ll lose some fuel efficiency and comfort while experiencing some added road noise.
Why You Should Choose Performance Tires

Get a set of performance tires if you drive a sports car, exotic vehicle, a racing-style car, or electric vehicle (EV) that requires them. However, it’s important to consider the options. Are you willing to give up some gas mileage, tire life, comfort, and seasonal versatility for that added control, cornering, and stopping? The pros at Les Schwab can help you decide what’s right for you and your driving needs.


    While run-flat tires are built to stay rigid when deflated, they still take damage the farther you drive after a puncture. With the reinforced sidewalls on run-flat tires, it’s possible to drive upwards of 50 miles at no more than 50 MPH when deflated. However, driving far can damage the tire beyond repair.

    Performance tires (also known as summer tires) are optimized for excellent road grip, cornering, braking, and acceleration in warmer weather. Additionally, they are great in wet conditions, reducing hydroplaning. In contrast, all-season tires are a good mix of summer tire performance and winter tire traction. Learn more about summer tires and all-season tires and which are right for you.

    When cornering and accelerating, you want as much of your tires to stay in contact with the road as possible. Performance tires do just that with tread patterns that typically feature shallow yet straighter grooves and a solid, continuous rib.

    As the name implies, performance tires are great for high-performance vehicles. That includes EVs, sports cars, luxury SUVs, and more.

    When compared to other types of tires, performance tires may need to be replaced more often for the best cornering, acceleration, and grip on wet roads. This is due to the softer rubber and shallower tread when compared to other tire options.
