All tyres without any doubt are tread in their unique way but the function of tread is similar in all the tyres. In some types of tyres the function of tread is enhanced while in some, they perform to their minimum level. Your tyres without tread are nothing just a rubber ring. It is the tread that makes it possible for tyres to create grip and traction with the road surface.
The tyre is a complex structure that is made of many various components yet Tyres Sturminster Newton tread is the most important aspect of any tyre. The rubber on a tyre’s perimeter that makes contact with the road or the ground is referred to as tread. The tread on tires wears down over time, reducing its ability to provide traction. A worn tire can often be retreaded.
The pattern of grooves moulded into the rubber is termed the tread pattern, or simply the pattern, and is often referred to as tread. The grooves are not part of the tread; they are part of it. This contrast is particularly important with racing slicks, which have a lot of treads but no grooves.
There are different types of tread patterns and each one of them is absolutely different from the other. With the enhancement in technology, the tyre industry is also modulating and inventing new types to provide better handling in your vehicle while driving.
The Three Tread Types Are-
Directional Tyre Tread-
This is one of the majorly used tread patterns all over the world. Mostly summer, performance, commercial and sporty tyres have symmetrical tread patterns. Because both parts of the tread pattern are identical, they can be installed and turned in either direction. Usually, they are supposed to roll in one direction. To avoid hydroplaning, this tread style allows water to be displaced from the tyre.
Symmetrical tread patterns are quiet and provide good road holding. The tread makes the tyre and reduces rolling resistance and hence it impacts fuel consumption in a positive manner.
Asymmetrical Tyre Tread-
The asymmetrical tread pattern is usually used in winter tyres. The first thing you will notice in tyres is that there will be two types of tread patterns in the inner and the outer part of the tyre and each tread pattern serve an individual purpose.
The inner part of the tread pattern prevents aquaplaning and disperses water for providing smooth motion for driving. The tread pattern on the outer part of the tyre will be stiff to provide lateral stability and such a tread pattern is able to provide you with high grip. At the time of cornering and turning this lateral stiffness will provide you with smooth driving.
Directional Tyre Tread-
This type of tread is basically for luxury and sporty car tyers, and for tyres that usually drive on wet road surfaces. It is considered to be the best of both worlds, just like all-season tyres. The Goodyear Tyres Sturminster Newton with directional tread pattern can be used as an alternative for symmetrical and asymmetrical tread patterns. The directed tread has a V-shaped pattern for draining water away from the tyre, and the asymmetrical tread has a dry-weather grip.
Directional tyres are made to only rotate in one direction and must be fitted properly. An arrow pointing in the direction of travel is plainly marked on their sidewalls.
The safest tread pattern for your tyres is the one suiting the various situations of weather and road conditions. It is completely your responsibility to maintain and choose the right tread pattern for your vehicle. If not you can take advice from professional technicians at the reputable garage.
