Why do so many semis equip their front tyres with spikes?  

Spikes or metal spikes are commonly installed on the outer edges of  

the front tyres of semi-trucks. It's common to refer to these as tyre chains or snow flaps,  

and their purpose is to help vehicles gain traction and control in hazardous conditions.  

They also aid the truck driver in maintaining control of the vehicle in slippery or slick circumstances, such as during turning.  

allowing the truck to keep its footing in slick weather. They help with stopping distances  

The upcoming electric truck will feature a sleek and contemporary design with the driver in mind.  

It will have simple controls, excellent visibility, and a centralised dashboard.
