Tread Contact Surface Prints

Whether it’s a bicycle, motorcycle, ATV or UTV tire, the tread contact patch (footprint) plays a key roll in determining the tire's traction, rolling resistance, handling & tread life.

Wheel Energy ‘footprints’ provide each client a series of prints (with dimension detail) that accurately show the amount of tread surface on the road.

These prints can be very helpful when designing a new tread pattern, modified an existing tread or comparing one tire brand to another.
