America's largest 'personal shoe shopper' for your vehicle conducts Max Performance Summer tire comparison test for drivers looking for a high blend of wet and dry traction and handling via the latest tire design and component technologies.

SOUTH BEND, Ind., Aug. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- TireRack.com, America's largest independent tire tester and consumer-direct source for tires, wheels and performance accessories, released the fourth set of results from its 19th annual tire testing season which included a Max Performance Summer tire comparison. Max Performance Summer tires (developed for sports cars, plus sporty coupes and sedans) are designed to deliver a blend of the best dry and wet traction and handling possible, in a tire civilized enough to live with during every day driving, while avoiding the compromises of more extreme performance tire options. 

TireRack.com, family-owned and headquartered in South Bend, Indiana, is America's largest independent tire tester and consumer-direct source for tires, wheels and performance accessories. TireRack.com experts test tires from every major tire manufacturer on the company's state-of-the-art, 11.7-acre test facility. Findings are posted on www.tirerack.com, where consumers can make an educated decision on a tire, wheel or performance accessory purchase based on how, where and what you drive.

Designed for high performance driving enthusiasts or those in need of sporty handling, these results show that all four tires tested performed well, and with enough variety across the group to allow nearly any performance-focused driver the ability to find a match for what best fits their needs. In this test, TireRack.com compared two of the newest tires, the Hankook Ventus V12 evo2 and Pirelli P Zero Nero GT, with two of the top-rated established leaders in the category, the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position and Continental ExtremeContact DW. Full test results can be accessed for free by consumers at www.tirerack.com/maxperfresults.

To find out how the new and established tires in the category performed against each other, TireRack.com split the test into two components. First, experts at TireRack.com conducted a 6.0-mile Real World Road Ride followed by a Performance Test Track Drive at its state-of-the-art, 11.7-acre test facility using its BMW 3-Series test car. The short video of results can be seen at www.tirerack.com/maxperfvideo.

TireRack.com's experts drive on 35-40 different tires every test season (May to September), putting them through a battery of track and road tests that evaluate real-world and performance capabilities at the limits in both wet and dry conditions.
