Learn about the types of tread on your tyres
Depending on the intended use (winter, summer, sport), the tyres may have different tread shapes. Tread is the part of the tyre that determines the grip to the surface, so the choice of a tyre with a properly shaped tread ensures safety and comfort of driving the car.
Slick tyres with a smooth tread are definitely not suitable for normal use. They are only used in racing cars, and in typical track competitions, where the tyres have the least rolling resistance, so they make it easier to drive fast enough. Unfortunately, they are not suitable for normal surfaces, and certainly not for bad weather conditions.
Groove treads are typical bicycle treads, they also have low rolling resistance, additionally they drain water well, they are used mainly in sports cycling and all kinds of city bikes.
Block tyres are used in off-road vehicles (bicycles and cars) and have a surface resembling a vibrating shoe sole. The blocks in tires are distributed differently depending on the surface to which the tires are to be used.
Mud and snow tyres are typical winter tyres, soft tread rubber and the way it is profiled make it easier to remove snow and slush and ensure good adhesion to the ground on slippery and snow-covered surfaces.
The treads in rain tyres are designed to drain water and provide good grip on wet surfaces.
Finally, for extreme weather conditions, tyres equipped with studded treads, i.e. metal studs, facilitate driving on snow and ice.
