Winter tyres

Winter tyres

The images show the braking distance for winter tyres. Winter tyres are constructed in such a manner so that they considerably reduce the braking distance on snow as compared to summer tyres. They are characterized by a larger number of grooves and sipes which bite into the snow and ensure better grip. In addition, they are made of a compound which behaves better at temperatures below 7°C – at which summer tyres lose their properties.

Winter tyres

Winter tyres are designed to keep the best performance at temperatures below 7°C. Mixtures used in winter tyres guarantee flexibility at low temperatures. A soft tyre ensures high level of grip. A hardened tyre, on the other hand, can lead to an uncontrollable skid. This can be particularly dangerous on a slippery winter surface. The structure and the tread patterns of modern winter tyres are designed on the basis of a computer simulation. They have an intricate system of grooves and sipes. The blocks of the winter tyre tread are of different sizes, are arranged in a variable manner and there are incisions on the edges in some models. Such a solution allows for the self-cleaning of the tread and, as a result, makes it easier to bite into the snow and to become released from it quickly. With each move, the snow attached to the groove detaches from it, thus cleaning the tread. Winter tyres are also equipped with peripheral grooves which are responsible for removing water and slush from under the tyre and improving its stability. In winter tyres, directional or asymmetrical tread patters are usually used. The directional pattern has the shape of the single herringbone. It is characterized by pushing the snow outside the tyre effectively. It also ensures continuous contact of the tyre with the surface and good grip. The asymmetrical tread, on the other hand, is characterized by differences on the inner and outer side of the tread. The inner part is responsible for effective water runoff and the outer one for good traction and grip on bends. The head of an asymmetrical tyre is characterized by an uneven distribution of grooves. Some winter tyres are equipped with spikes, which considerably improve grip on compacted snow and on ice. This solution is used, for example, in Russia and in Scandinavia where snow can be encountered for a large part of the year. It is not legal in the UK, due to the nature of our winters (frequent thaws etc.). Winter tyres are designed to ensure the best performance on snow and ice. Their treads are optimized with winter conditions on mind.
