Why are there winter, summer and all-season tyres?

By Admin Tyre With 3 Comments

Every tyre is a compromise between many factors that can also be interdependent. You can't brake without grip. But then the material of the tyre must also produce grip which strains the road surface. The abrasion in turn pollutes the environment. Different rubber compounds are better or worse resistant to cold. Other compounds are better for rain and snow.

So what's more important? Today the tyre should not make any noise and consume as little energy as possible. The abrasion should also be small so that no fine dust is produced.

I think that what it has to do with the removal of water and snow interacts with wear and tear and braking distance.

I am not a specialist for tire development. But it also seems logical to me. For snow and mud you need wider and deeper grooves in the tread. But with the same tyre width there is less rubber connected to the road. This makes the braking distance longer. This can be partly compensated by softer rubber compounds which wear out faster.
