Quoting YokoTsuno (Thread starter): Is this also the case for aircraft? If so what is used for intercontinental flights?
Small GA aircraft sometimes change tires for different surfaces (e.g. tundra tires), but I've never heard of them changing just for climatic conditions. I have never heard of large airliners changing tires for weather conditions...airliners modify their landing distance calculations based on runway surface condition (dry/wet/ice/snow/standing water/etc.) rather than changing tires.
