One of the experts measured the stopping distance from a speed of 60 mph (96 km / h) to a complete stop in both wheelsets, to show us how much changes in tires' behavior were made in car performance and the results This test was very amazing.
The four-seater tires only managed to slow down from 60 mph to a complete stop at 136 ft (41 m), while the new summer tires performed the same slow-throttle and full stop at 107 ft (32 m). That was less than 30 feet (9 meters).
In addition, Bridgestone tires were able to produce 20% of the gravitational force (acceleration) more during the slowdown, which gives us an idea of how well the tires are to improve the performance of the vehicle. For this reason, the replacement and handling of tires is one of the most important reforms to improve vehicle performance.
