Physics
posted by Lucy .
I have to compare and contrast three types of tires, and relate them to physics.
I've chosen:
<li> Racing tires
<li> Winter tires
<li> All season tires
I've chosen to compare them on:
<li> Tire tread pattern
<li> Rubber compound
<li> ???
As you can see, I need something else to compare. I thought of air pressure but that's not really determined by the type of tire...any ideas?
Thanks.

I suggest you also look into the very important differences between radial and biasply construction of the underlying layers:
