Truck & Bus
Bias tires are used primarily for off-the-road, agricultural, and industrial vehicles. Bias tire construction utilizes body ply cords that extend diagonally from bead to bead, usually at angles in the range of 30 to 40 degrees, with successive plies laid at opposing angles forming a crisscross pattern to which the tread is applied. The design allows the entire tire body to flex easily, providing the main advantage of this construction, a smooth ride on rough surfaces with stronger sidewall resisting scratch and abrasion.
Radial tires are produced for passenger cars, light trucks, trucks, and buses. Radial tire construction utilizes body ply cords extending from the beads and across the tread so that the cords are laid at approximately right angles to the centerline of the tread, and parallel to each other, as well as stabilizer belts directly beneath the tread. The design offers the tire with longer tread life, better steering control, and lower rolling resistance.
Winter tires designed for the extreme conditions in colder weather with snow and ice. Such tires are widely used for passenger cars, light trucks, trucks and buses, and are optimized to drive at temperatures below 7 ℃ (45 ℉).The tread compound is usually softer than summer tires and provides better grip on ice and snow. Winter tires are generally categorized into two types: studdable and studless.
Vehicle tires that have metal pins or "studs" protruding from them are called studded tires. The tires make driving safer because of the way the metal pins in bit into the ice and caused enough friction to prevent slipping and sliding on icy and snowy roads.
Studless snow tires are the most popular style of snow tire. The tires are lack of the small metal studs that poke out from the treads of studded tires, but they are designed to have good traction performance on icy and snowy roads using special compound and do not make as much noise as studded tires, offering better ride comfort.
All Season Tire
All-season tire is a compromise between one developed for use on dry and wet roads during summer and one developed for use under winter conditions. It is designed to provide balanced dry and wet performance, as well as acceptable snow traction in regions with light winter weather. They have become ubiquitous for original fitment of vehicles and replacement market due to their convenience and their adequate performance in most situations.
Summer tire are designed for ultra-high performance driving in warm seasons, built for responsive handling & control in both dry and wet conditions and providing great road traction.
A run-flat tire is a pneumatic tire that is designed to resist the effects of deflation when punctured, to enable the vehicle to continue to be driven at reduced speeds (up to 90 km/h (55 mph), and for limited distances of up to 160 km (100 mi ), or even320 km (200 mi) depending on the type of tire. Westlake introduces runflat tires which run safely with no air for a limited range at a limited speed. These tires typically feature strong, load-supporting sidewalls.
