As published in Tire Review magazine, Siping increases the number of edges that a tire has to bite into snow. Tests conducted by the National Safety Council showed a 64% increase in breakaway traction and an increase of 28% spinning traction on ice with siped tires compared to unsiped tires. In stopping distance tests, the reduction was from 200 feet to 155.6 feet – a 22% improvement!
As published in Tire Review magazine, independent testing shows up to 200% traction improvement after tires were siped. New scientific proof confirms what millions of customers already know. Siping works.
Four Wheeler magazine featured a great article that covers the reasons, benefits and process of siping tires. It includes several examples, along with photos and captions.
