Yes, they are excellent for dry lane conditions and/or picking up spares. Their slick surface composition means they will not hook even if you put a lot of spin on the ball and so they will go where you aim them. On a dry lane the slick surface keeps them from hooking too much and allows you to control the ball better than a ball with a grabbing surface texture. == ==

Why do drag racing tires have no tread - isn't tread supposed to increase traction?

In ideal conditions, dry weather, great road surface etc. slick tyres offer more rubber to the road therefore greater traction. Normal road tyres are a compromise, on any one trip your car may have to cope with sunshine, rain, sleet, snow, bad road surface, smooth surface, mud, and gravel. Manufacturers have to make a tyre that can cope with that. The result is the tyre on your car.

Will brake fluid leaking on motorcycle tires be harmful to the tires?
