This paper discusses the main features bringing about an increasing need for high speed tires. Namely, increased top speeds of cars, increasing tire loads, and improved highway conditions.
Items to consider for improving high speed tire performance are discussed. The effect on high speed of tire size, of inflation pressure, of over-loads, and of tire design and construction are reviewed.
Data is presented on the design, construction, and performance of new high speed tires. The tires specifically discussed are the Firestone “500” and the Super Sports 170.
