The aftermarket demand for high-performance tires is primarily driven by the accelerated wear and tear experienced by softer rubber tires designed for extremely high speeds. In racing championships, where high-performance tires have the greatest presence, teams typically utilize between 9-14 sets of tires depending on track length, surface type (such as asphalt or concrete), and track category (like short track, speedway, superspeedway, or road course). As a result, the aftermarket segment witnesses a significantly higher demand for high-performance tires compared to the OEM segment.
