The best summer tyres for supercars

Many supercar manufacturers have a tyre of choice for their cars because they understand how the right tyre can affect performance, handling, comfort and fuel consumption.

Performance summer tyres are the kind that will give optimum grip on dry, warm roads while also reducing braking distances in the wet.

If you take your supercar on track, these summer tyres will work nicely although you may have to adjust the pressures to account for the extra heat that going into them.

Getting performance tyres for your car is one of the cheapest ways to improve handling in the corners. A lot of people look to upgrade their car's suspension to help with this when, in reality, a good set of tyres will do the job for a fraction of the price.

Before spending money on expensive mods, make sure you have the right performance tyres on your car – super or otherwise.

Here is Bush Tyres' selection of high performance summer tyres you can trust on the road.
