Modern Tires Ruin the Roads

Pebbles catch in the fine sipes of modern tires and are carried in the
tread. As the tire rolls, they abrade the roadways.

Earlier tire designs use coarse zig-zag treads that cannot pick up small
rocks.

Car manufacturers should specify tire tread designs that do no degrade the
roads. Only rubber compound should contact the roadways.

I've been picking pea gravel out of tires for about 4 decades. I'd be
far more concerned with

a) how well they shed water to prevent hydroplaning
b) how well they grip the road
c) chains and spikes from snow tires
d) heavy trucks on not very thick roadways
e) even, where I live, the nature of the soil; it's very brittle and
continuously slipping down the mountainsides, or washing out under the
roads.

True...they only picked up larger rocks.

You are NUTS. If you are driving in icy/snowy conditions, the finely
siped tire is a NECESSITY. If you have STUDS, that is (possibly) a
different story. Carbide studs damage the road, particularly if you
spin the tires. Nylon studs do minimal damage. Gravel stones, sand and
pebbles????? NEVER.

Those modern tire provide much better all weather traction and save
lives.
By the way I seldom see pebbles stuck in the tread of my Michelin
Harmony all season tires.
What inferior tires are you referring to.

Sunshine and rain do more damage.

Ban the weather.

Re: Modern Tires Ruin the Roads

May be they should start building roads out of recycled rubber from tires,
then the roads could throw the stones back in retaliation.
