Nokian Tyres has revealed a new interesting concept of a winter tire equipped with deployable studs.

Finnish tire manufacturer Nokian Tyres have come up with what they consider as being a "revolutionary concept tire" for the winter equipped with stud technology which aims to increase safety on icy roads. These tires are based on the firm's Hakkapeliitta 8 SUV studded winter tire model and feature deployable studs activated when more grip is needed by the simply push of a button mounted inside the cabin.

When the driver no longer needs the studs, he will just have to press the button once again and the studs will retract within the tire. It should be mentioned regular studded tires are illegal in several countries as they cause damage to the road surface but in the future the law could be updated to allow this type of tire to be used on public roads whenever the situation imposes.
