Why Do Tires Have Tread?

Wondering about the different patterns in your tire- the one that touches the road? It helps in increasing the traction between your tires and the road. Safety grooving is important because it will help you keep safe while on the road even if it rains. But what really is the purpose of it?


  1. For hydroplaning or to skim on water. This is because a film of water on the surface can cause tires to lose contact with it.
  2. Some tires are designed with grooves that will work even with mud and snow.
  3. When there is too much water on the road, losing the grip can cause an accident.
