Tread Patterns

Certain tread patterns are more suitable for tracks than others. For example, Nokian FK-F Forest King F is very suitable and was designed for use with tracks, however Nokian TRS is less suitable and although these tires can be used with tracks, their aggressive tread pattern with deep widely spaced lugs can cause problems.

Tracks should only be used on steel reinforced, high ply rated, crossply forestry tires.
