Tires and Physics: A Lesson in Friction (Sponsored by

Special thanks to for sponsoring this blog post! Thanks to their sponsorship, you can get 15% off your next set of tires from them with the coupon code FASTERSKUNK15

I partnered with the US Distributor for Accelera Tires for a post about how friction, pressure, and temperature all affect the grip and performance of a tire. The short of it is that the heat created has to go somewhere, so unless you’re specifically doing autocross where you need to gauge temperatures on a very short course, you’ll most certainly want to understand how each corner of your car ebbs and flows with regard how the pressure impacts your contact patch with the track surface.

As this article was sponsored by them, it is primarily hosted on their website, so please check it out after the jump:
