Tyres and Tyremarks

Tyres can leave both 3D impressions or 2D marks

Tyres are fitted to a range of vehicles; bicycles, motorcycles, cars, vans, lorries, four-wheel drive vehicles, etc. Different tyres are produced in a range of sizes to suit the requirements of different vehicles. These are produced by a number of manufacturers and are available in a range of pattern types.

When a tyre comes into contact with a soft deformable surface such as soil, a three-dimensional impression may be left and with a hard surface, a two-dimensional mark is more likely to be left. The mark could be visible or it might be latent, requiring physical or chemical development to reveal the mark.
