CONDUCTION OF TESTS IN THE CEMENT RESEARCH INSTITUTE TO ESTABLISH ABRASION CAUSED BY STUDDED TYRES OF THE SO-CALLED NEW GENERATION - COMPARISON OF THE RESULTS WITH WELL-KNOWN STUDIES

DURCHFUEHRUNG VON VERSUCHEN IM ZEMENTFORSCHUNGSINSTITUT ZUR FESTSTELLUNG DES ABRIEBES VON SPIKESREIFEN DER SOGENANNTEN NEUEN GENERATION - VERGLEICH DER ERGEBNISSE MIT BEKANNTEN UNTERSUCHUNGEN

BECAUSE OF THE DISADVANTAGES OF STUDDED TYRES IN PRACTICE, THE FIRM SEMPERIT DEVELOPED A NEW TYPE OF STUDDED TYRE WHICH IS SUPPOSED TO GUARANTEE LESS ABRASION TO THE ROAD SURFACE WHILE OFFERING THE SAME SAFETY. IN LABORATORY STUDIES MEASUREMENTS OF ABRASION ARE TO BE MADE ON BLACK-TOP AND CONCRETE SURFACINGS, AND THESE SHOULD ENABLE THE MINISTRY TO PROVIDE INFORMATION ON POSSIBLE FURTHER ABRASION IF THESE TYRES ARE USED.
