Tread depth and Stopping distance
Any formula/thumb rules to calculate the stopping distance of a car in relation to its tread depth for the following conditions:
(a) wet roads
(b) dry roads
(c) car weight ?
To simplify, lets also assume the braking system is standard front discs, rear drums and passive braking (no ABS, EBD etc.). And the speed of the car is 100 kmph.
I did find a graphic towards the same, from Tyres stopping distances - as tread depth reduces so required stopping distances increases:
Any affirmations/otherwise of the graph will also help, although a car's weight is not accounted for in that graph.
