The task is to evaluate the design of three types of car tires, and explain how each type differs to maximize performance. Physics terminology is to be included in our report.

I just need a starting point. What types of tires do you recommend I research and what physics terminology can I possibly include?

Begin with a list and understanding of tire types. See the "construction" section of

Radial tires have an advantage in gas mileage and biasply tires supposedly have an advantage in comfortable ride. Solid tires have no blowout risk.
