1.17.1. Tyres

On snow and ice in barefoot persons do not go – the car for the winter too should be changed. About winter rubber we wrote repeatedly, therefore we will shortly remind only high lights.

For winter tyres with marks M+S (Mud+Snow – "Grjaz+Sneg"), Winter or W are intended ("Winter"). These inscriptions are sometimes accompanied by pictogrammes in the form of a snowflake or тучки.

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

It is undesirable to go in the winter by all-weather tyres – that are marked by indexes AS (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 in the event that it is a question about малоснежной to Europe, instead of of Russia. Told to a lesser degree concerns rubbers for off-road cars. It in all-weather execution it is essential "more winter", than automobile. If at you the off-road car, tyres AS and AW is is comprehensible in the winter. But is, of course, worse, than M+S or Winter.

Shipovannye tyres on ice and on snow hold better, than нешипованные. But on pure asphalt at 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, нешипованные winter tyres of new generations on a slippery surface behave practically not worse, than шипованные.

Some for the winter put шипованные tyres only on driving wheels. And on the conducted leave... The summer. Do not do so, it is dangerous. On slippery road the probability of a pulling down нешипованной steams of wheels is very great, even in rather harmless situations, – coupling and resistance factors to lateral withdrawal too strongly differ.

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