Top Performers in Extreme Performance Summer Tires

Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 Star SpecYokohama Advan Neova AD08If you want the most dry traction in a tire that you can live with on the street, Extreme Performance Summer tires may be your best bet. You will sacrifice a little noise comfort and wet traction, but in exchange you will have dry handling that can't be beat. Here are a few options: Bridgestone Potenza RE-11, Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec, Yokohama Advan Neova AD08, and Kumho Ecsta XS.

Bridgestone Potenza RE11Kumho Ecsta XSBased on performance, ride comfort, and price my two favorite tires are the Bridgestone and the Dunlop; however, the Kumho and Yokohama are also worthy of a second look.  Be sure to read up on our reviews, test results, and consumer surveys to help you select which tire is right for you.
