1.17.1. Tires


On snow and ice in sandals do not go – the car for the winter too should be changed. About winter rubber we wrote repeatedly therefore we will shortly remind only main issues.

For winter tires with M+S markings (are intended to Mud+Snow – "Gryaz+sneg"), Winter ("Winter") or W. These inscriptions are sometimes accompanied by pictograms in the form of a snowflake or a tuchka.

It is better to choose tires поуже, than by what you go in the summer – naturally, within admissible for your car of a dimensional range. The protector should press through snow and mud porridge to a firm covering, and narrow tires cope with it better.

It is undesirable to go in the winter by all-weather tires – that are marked by AS indexes (All Seasons – "All seasons") or AW (Any Weather – "Any weather").

"Winter" possibilities at them weak; all-weather in the true sense of the word it is possible to consider them only if it is a question of low-snow Europe, instead of about Russia. Told to a lesser extent concerns some rubber for SUVs. It in all-weather execution essentially "more winter", than automobile. If you have a SUV, tires AS and AW in the winter is is acceptable. But, of course, worse, than M+S or Winter.

Tires on ice and on snow hold Shipovannye better, than neshipovanny. But on pure asphalt when braking on thorns the probability of blocking of wheels, drift and a brake way increase: steel thorns not bad slide on asphalt. Danger consists also that drivers blindly trust in thorns and, braking on asphalt, expect from them the same death grip, as well as on ice. By the way, neshipovanny winter tires of new generations on a slippery surface behave practically not worse, than shipovanny.

Some for the winter put shipovanny tires only on driving wheels. And on conducted leave... the summer. Do not do so, it is dangerous. On the slippery road the probability of demolition of neshipovanny pair of wheels is very great, even in rather harmless situations, – factors of coupling and resistance to lateral withdrawal too strongly differ.

Not шипуйте tires anywhere. It is process responsible, demanding the good equipment and experts. Warped, it is insufficiently or thorns unduly drowned in rubber increase wear of the tire. And, clearly, safety do not promote.
