Ever since studded tires were flrst introduced, the advantages, disadvantages, and effects of studded tires on vehicles, drivers and pavement systems has been the center of research and controversy for highway and transportation administrators, as well as safety engineers. The primary objective of this synthesis is to assemble, extract, organize and present information pertaining to the history of the studded tire (i.e., how it has evolved over time) in a detailed/descriptive chronological manner. The project also explores the relationship between the wear of pavements and the studded tire developments that have taken place over the past forty years
