This is the second of a series of reports which deals with wheel track rutting in asphalt pavements. Specifically, the report is concerned with the extent of rutting due to studded tires. Significant findings include: very little research has been done since 1980 in this area, with the exception of work in the Scandinavian countries; many agencies continue to prohibit or restrict the use of studded tires; very little new information on percent of vehicles using studded tires or on tire wear studies was available; factors affecting wear rates were defined; the consequences and benefits of using studded tires were identified.
