Global Automotive Winter Tire Market 2017-2021

About Automotive Winter Tire

Winter tires are designed to be used in cold weather and in snowy and icy pavements. These tires have a larger gap tread for increasing traction on snow and mud. Winter tires are an ideal fitment in regions having temperature below 45 F, thereby increasing their adoption in the automotive industry. The developments in rubber technologies have led to the development of studless winter tires.
