Description: The tractive perfomance of a new tire, a worn tire, and a worn tire with forestry tire chains was measured in four soil types. Two of the soil types simulated forest-floor conditions with one soil type having a sulfate cover of pine straw and the other having a surface cover of sod. The two remaining soil types were bare. The worn tire with and without chains had higher net traction than the new tire. Tractive eficiency was highest for the worn tire without chains in all soil types.
Keywords: tires, traction, tractive performance, forestry tire chains wear
