Now if you really want to get down to the real truth.......
In perfect road conditions, ie. no loose gravel, no leaves, no water, or any other such debris, a totally bald tire with absolutely no tread will give the best traction. That is why when NASCAR is in town they run racing slicks. The only run under perfect conditions, always blowing junk of the track and stop if it starts to even mist.
BUT, since we NEVER, or seldom ever, get to ride in those perfect conditions..... then yeppers..... the more tread the better.
That is why I do believe my next front tire will be the BT45 rear tire..... more tread depth.
