I remember seeing a chart of the stopping comparison many years ago and it stuck, I cannot find that particular article or chart but did come across the video companion to the link that " redpoint5" has posted, from the tire rack.

I am actually surprised that a worn tire performs better on dry roads. I always assumed the rubber compound in road tires would not grip as the race slicks do.
Save gas
