Driving a car in winter, of course, requires certain skills. However, no matter how well you either drove a car, so much depends on it "footwear" – well-chosen tires. If you are offered "all season" tires, talk about their excellent properties, and even they will be equipped with quality certificates – do not believe it! It does not happen – that bus, even built with the help of "laser technology", could equally well be on the road, strewn with snow, rain and on dry track. This is nonsense! Almost all the bus are divided into two large groups of tread – winter and summer. Today we talk about winter tires. It is clear that they must tread provide a smooth, well-controlled movement on snow and even compacted road. The idea is that a bus must have a deep tread pattern, which can provide good grip on snowy roads, as well as remove snow, slush or water through the drainage ditches. These tires are, and they show themselves very well when driving on snowy road.
At the same time be aware that when driving on dry roads, these tires cause increased noise in the cabin and negatively affect the control of the car. Tires for snow tires, of course, is slightly different in composition from the rubber tires summer. The fact that such tires must maintain their properties in sufficiently low temperatures below zero. That is, it is much softer and more elastic than the old tire. It is clear that the use of tires in the summer will cause "sticking" to the road while driving. Another solution – spikes on the tread. However, in Europe, studded tire is prohibited, as it is believed that it affects the road surface. At the same time, Finland and Canada at the legislative level, require drivers to use in cold weather tires.
