GT5’s New Tire Degradation Dynamics Explored

Gran Turismo 5 65 December 28, 2011 by

Amongst the listed changes for GT5’s v2.02 update earlier this month was an adjustment to the tire wear speed. Up until this point players had been used to the three tyre compounds within each grade – Racing, Sports and Comfort – wearing at relatively similar rates while offering different outright grip levels. The soft tires were the racers’ obvious choice for grip without a tire life penalty.

After the December update this changed and the softer tires no longer had the same longevity as the harder compounds. The exact nature of this change has been the source of some debate on the GTPlanet forums, however GTP member chuyler1 has put together a very nice analysis of the current tire wear rates on the Racing grade tires that members planning to participate in longer races will find very useful.
