As the only part of a vehicle that makes contact with the ground, tires play a crucial role in ensuring safety by providing sufficient grip. However, in the case of heavy rainfall, the decreased road adhesion coefficient can greatly affect tire performance, particularly braking. Losing grip due to standing water can easily lead to accidents. Therefore, tire manufacturers pay great attention to wet driving safety.
Usually, big truck tires have drainage grooves of various styles and numbers, but primarily three or four longitudinal grooves. Complemented by transverse closed or semi-closed patterns, water drains out of the tire as quickly as possible, ensuring that the tire maintains a firm grip on the ground. The tire tread design must take into account the possibility of rain. Once water accumulates, the main and auxiliary drainage grooves will quickly clear it and cut through the water film to keep the tire steady.
Usually, there are several such grooves on a tire, and their width and depth are carefully designed to ensure timely drainage on rainy days while maintaining sufficient traction on the tire surface. Thus, a tire's wetland performance can reflect the level of design technology of tire companies. Many tires have been specifically designed for wet conditions in evaluations, achieving impressive results.
In wetland obstacle course evaluations, the water splashed up by the tire during high-speed turns perfectly demonstrates the tire's drainage performance. The use of a high polymer formula improves the tire's handling on wet surfaces. Drivers' feedback confirms that even during consecutive left and right turns, the vehicle remains stable, perfectly showcasing its outstanding wetland performance.
Big truck tires have unique designs, with a V-shaped tread pattern and denser drainage grooves, demonstrating their emphasis on wetland performance for driving on icy and snowy roads. Wetland braking not only tests the tire's grip on wet roads but also its drainage ability.
The obstacle course in wetlands is more challenging for tires' drainage ability due to the slippery ground that reduces their grip on the road. The tread pattern's drainage and grip play an essential role in ensuring that the truck tire does not slide off or deviate and can smoothly pass through obstacles.
Therefore, tire wetland performance is vital, and tire dealers can highlight this feature when recommending tires. Although most people are interested in a tire's handling, the primary purpose of tire tread design is to ensure safety. Suitable tires can be recommended based on consumers' needs.
