This is the trend of the modern tyre manufacturer. Hence, to make a specific tyre for a specific model of car. In my opinion it has been a good idea. Of course, the only drawback is the number of same size tyres. hence, that we have to keep into to satisfy different car models.

Consequently, the new BMW ALPINA B5 Bi-Turbo accelerates from 0 – 100 kph in just 3.5 seconds. Of course, this is one of the things that tyre manufacturers must take into consideration. Thus when designing the tyres. Taking into consideration the speed and load ratings of the new tyres.
