Description


Winguard Winspike tires are molded for installing studs that dig into snow or ice for better traction. The optimized arrangement of sipes and block rigidity maximizes handling and traction on ice in combination with the V-shaped tread pattern. Noise is addressed by the calculated placement of 12 multi-random stud lines.

  • V-Shape Tread Pattern enhanced snow traction performance through rigidity of the blocks.
  • Improves traction performance on snow and ice and minimizes stud noise by optimum allocation of 12 multi random stud lines.
  • Maximizes performance on ice and snow by edge effects and improves straight directional driving stability.
  • Maximizes handling and traction performance on ice and snow by edge effects of wave and step multi sipes, optimized arrangement of sipes and block rigidity.
