What can drivers of sports cars and other high performance vehicles with low profile, Z rated ultra high performance tires do if they want to have longer wearing tires?  

In the past, the best a driver could hope for in regards to tread wear would be about 20,000 miles.  This was the case for so long that it has become a common misconception that all low profile tires or a tires with a high speed rating have rapid tread wear. On the contrary, there are low profile, high speed rated tires with long tread wear ratings.

Three of the best high speed rated tires with longer wear that are made in low profile sizes are the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3, Hankook Ventus S1 Noble2, and the Continental Extreme Contact DWS.
