Rouler sur la neige

Ride on the snow

Plastic low pressure wheels such as DUNEMER wheels offer several advantages when it comes to driving on snow:

  1. Buoyancy: Plastic low pressure wheels tend to be wider than standard wheels, which increases the contact surface with the snow. This improves the vehicle's buoyancy, reducing the risk of sinking in deep snow.

  2. Grip: Low-pressure plastic wheels are often fitted with studs or special tread patterns. These features improve grip on snow, providing better traction and handling.

  3. Flexibility: The plastic used in the low pressure wheels has a certain flexibility, which allows it to better absorb the irregularities of the snowy terrain. This contributes to a more comfortable and stable ride, reducing jolts and vibrations.

  4. Corrosion Resistance: Unlike metal wheels, plastic low pressure wheels are resistant to corrosion caused by salt or chemicals used to clear snow from roads. This makes them more durable and less likely to deteriorate when exposed to these conditions.

  5. Lightweight: Plastic low-pressure wheels are generally lighter than metal wheels, which can reduce overall vehicle weight. Less mass makes handling easier and can also help reduce fuel consumption.

It should be noted that the benefits of plastic low pressure wheels may vary depending on vehicle type, snow conditions and individual preference.
