Winter tires are specially designed for winter driving pavement. It has a special treadmill formula and tread pattern, can guarantee the safety performance in winter weather conditions, play the best performance of the car.
Winter tires are designed at the beginning of the block pattern, as well as in the block on the increase in small patterns, used to increase the grip in the snow performance. While the winter tires in the design of the beginning of the technology will be easier to enhance the driving capacity in the snow, so the beginning of the winter tires by people image called "snow tires." But the snow is always going to melt, the ice will always lose no time to come. Improve the ice driving capacity has become the focus of the tire manufacturers. It now appears that Japanese manufacturers still like block patterns, such as Bridgestone, Dunlop, gifted horses, and so on, while the European manufacturers are more inclined to guide the pattern and non-forming patterns, which is a block pattern do not have. While the non-symmetrical pattern is able to provide good complex road driving performance.
Tips: In the tire replacement, remember to replace the four tires at the same time, because part of the replacement in use will cause four wheels and the ground adhesion is uneven, it will cause potential security risks. Owners easy to overlook is that in the winter, the low temperature will affect the tire pressure. According to the principle of thermal expansion and contraction, with the temperature drop, tire pressure will be reduced, this time can be appropriate to the tire to increase the appropriate tire pressure to compensate for the tire and ground friction becomes smaller, the brake performance weakened defects. But the excessive inflation will also result in decreased tire grip, affecting the comfort of the control. So in order to increase the tire adhesion, winter owners can be appropriate to reduce tire pressure.
Investigation on Consumer Satisfaction in Winter
According to the anti-skid performance of the winter tires are divided into jagged tires, snow tires and anti-skid tires three specifications. Since J.D. POWER began in 2004 on the winter tire consumer satisfaction survey, Michelin winter tires for 11 consecutive years to obtain consumer satisfaction first.
In order to effectively reflect the winter tire brand market changes. J.D. POWER adjusts the evaluation criteria for each brand tires. Mainly from six aspects to measure consumer satisfaction with the winter tires:
1, ice grip and handling (weight 25%);
2, appearance (weight 17%);
3, quiet and comfortable (weight 17%);
4, wear resistance (weight 15%);
5, snow grip and handling (weight 13%);
6, dry / wet grip and handling (weight 13%)
