Not too long ago, a few tire manufacturers began to launch tires that pushed the envelope even further with tires like the Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec, Bridgestone Potenza RE-11 and the Yokohama ADVAN Neova AD08. Tire Rack felt that the performance level on these tires required the creation of a separate category that we named: Extreme Performance Summer.
