Wasn't a believer of Nokian brand tires ever since and it just wasn't as famous as some of the other heavily-marketed tire brands. But after having tire services done at Kal-tire here in Canada where we get some of the harshest and coldest winters I stumbled upon and heard the Nokian all-weather tires/5(37). A great overall touring tire with excellent traction and good grip in adverse weather and when taking corners. Mounting and balancing are no problem, with tires fitting wheels well. Very good traction, especially when cornering. Tires need a few days’ breaking in to ensure best traction. Excess tread wear reported on some tires. GT-A All-Season. These consisted of studded snow tires with "Norfin" studs, and Garnet impregnated snow tires. Studded tires on all four wheels were also evaluated, at the request of the Washington State Patrol. This combination is used by Troopers assigned to mountain highway passes and areas where there is a large buildup of snow and ice during the winter.

Deflating Myths About Studded Winter Tires For years, studded winter tires had a bad rap: They were loud and some districts worried they were creating ruts in the pavement. However, since studded tires have always offered superior safety on hard-packed snow and ice, many drivers were willing to sacrifice that clicking sound for significantly.

Get this from a library. Studded tires versus pavement wear and safety: 4 reports. [National Research Council (U.S.). Highway Research Board.; National Research Council (U.S.).

Highway Research Board. Annual Meeting; National Research Council (U.S.). Highway Research Board. Committee on Effect of Studded Tires.] -- Pavement wear and a substantial increase in maintenance costs due to the use. On bare pavement, studded tires tend to have poorer traction performance than other tire types.

This is especially true for concrete; for asphalt, there is little difference in stopping distance between studded and non-studded tires. Tractive performance of studded tires is sensitive to stud wear. Studded tires may.

Highways to conduct a study of pavement wear and traffic safety as affected by studded tires and to report to the legislature to assist it in making a determination as to its source of action on future legis­ lation.

The Minnesota Highway Department undertook extensive re­ search both with its own personnel and through contract agreements. This was less than 1 percent of the wear rate caused by studded tires on even the best concrete pavements.

Thus, the studded tires caused at least times more abrasion damage than the wear increase produced by sand and salt and unstudded tires. Salt alone and unstudded tires produced no mea­ surable pavement Size: 5MB. Like Danny, studded tires have a bad rap, perhaps well earned.

Their biggest downfall is their appetite for asphalt. They chew up roads, increasing wear and tear, resulting in sometimes-staggering Author: Jill Burke. Studded tires have a marked effect on pavement condition: they tend to wear away the pavement surface in the wheelpath and create depressions that can be safety issues because of an increased potential for hydroplaning and.

Studded tires can rut pavement and cause vehicles to hydroplane on accumulated water in the ruts, excessive road spray and premature damage to pavement markings. Figure 3: Pavement wear caused by studded tires of portland cement concrete, I, I Polk County Each picture shows pavement wear, location, including highway number, direction of travel, right or left wheel path and station.

Also included are the direction the camera is facing and the month and year. 8File Size: KB. Both snow studs and chains take their toll on pavement, gradually wearing down the roadway as hundreds of thousands of motorists commute during the winter months.

The consensus is that studded snow tires cause the most damage, and must be swapped out with summer tires when the weather warms up.

Chains must also be removed when there isn’t. The use and effects of studded tires in Oregon are investigated, updating a report. Studded-tire use was surveyed, rut measurements collected, studded-tire traffic estimated, and pavement wear and damage analyzed.

Studded-tire use in Oregon varies geographically. Half of the vehicles. Studded tires wear out differently than other tires. The studs have flat heads on them, much like roofing nails. The heads are embedded inside the tire tread so you can't see them.

But they move a bit with every rotation of the wheel, wiggling back and forth. This movement will. LABORATORY EVALUATION OF PAVEMENT DAMAGE CAUSED BY STUDDED TIRES, SALT AND ABRASIVE SAND. This report presents the results of four series of pavement-wear tests conducted on American's traffic simulator, a circular test-track facility capable of exposing 12 pavement sections simultaneously to winter traffic conditions, including close climate control.

The reputation studded tires have for providing poor dry and wet performance is probably a remnant of a time when the only true winter tires most people had experienced were studded tires. Those tires certainly would have performed worse on clean pavement than a more summer-oriented tire – just as it is with tires now – and it would have.

The studs in studded tires are designed to wear at more or less the same rate as the tread to ensure even performance. With studless tires, you may see reduced performance after a couple of seasons as the softer, more flexible rubber compound wears.

can anyone advise me on the merits of studded vs non-studded snow tires. after years of commuting to the berkshires safely on all weather tires, i totalled my 07 accord on black ice in december.

new accord has wider tires and i’ve been advised snows are essential on this car. currently have studded on front and all-weather on back (yes, i know not good, but tire guy suggested i try 2 first. Basically the short answer is studded (of course).

Even mediocre studded tires outperform the best studless tires year after year. Sure, studless tires are considerably better than all-seasons, however, think about it this way: The most dangerous time of the year to be driving is when roads are covered in hard packed warm snow or sheets of ice.

I'd say toss the studded tires for good and put some good snow tires on there seasonally or even just 4-season tires on there for good, depending on your vehicle's needs. As you can see, I live in CO too and my snow tires and my even all-weather tires have always given me ample traction.

I gotta admit, I admire the salesmanship it takes to get people to flip out + for some crap tires to use for a week that could be spent on non-studded snow tires that have a longer life span and can be used for more of the year because they help in the rain too.

But these are winter tires, so if you drive on pavement during the summer the tires wear out real fast. These are my favorite tires for driving on snow and ice up here. Bare pavement wears the studs. The studs also damage pavement surfaces, and that's why studded tires are only legal for a short season (October-April up here).

As I said these tires are a luxury item in our climate. If you are dedicated to never miss a day commuting then they could be useful, or you could simply drive or take the bus on those rare occasions they are.

Under normal driving conditions you will probably not notice a loss in handling with the studded tires, but there is very little gain in traction on snow over snow tires. However, you can actually lose braking or handling traction on dry and wet pavement compared to all season tires or snow tires under some conditions.

Drawbacks of Studded Winter Tires.
