These are only for severe testing till the limits. they also have a flutter test which vibrates the plane to hell while going at maximum velocity of 0.96mach.
My friend those are not orange skid pads. The friction is so much that the metal has become RED HOT..
Check both the video's properly and you will realise it.

Loved your video, "Recent A380 crosswind test in Iceland"
with the A-380 landing on Rwy 29 with a northbound crosswind.

This was shot at the Naval Air Station, Keflavík International Airport, Iceland -- Iceland's largest airport.

The Bluebird Cargo Boeing 737-36E in front of it shows how big the A-380 really is. Camera is aligned with Rwy 20/02 as the yellow marker shows.



Here is a clearer view.
