There are basically three kinds of tyre treads,

Symmetric treads

Asymmetric treads

Directional treads

Symmetric Tread

For some reason these the least popular of these three kind of tyre treading, they are used for small vehicles and vans.

Asymmetric Treads

Here the inner and outer treading go in opposite directions. These kind of tyres are used for bigger vehicles, and vehicles with bigger engine power. and the likes. This is also the most popular kind of tread amongst tyres.

Directional Tread

Here the tread shape either comes in U or in a V. They feature oblique grooves. The advantage of this kind of tyre is that it is great for wet driving conditions. The direction of the treading helps to drain off water very quickly, both summer wetness, snow and slush. Directional tyres are said to reduce hydroplaning by up to 20% more than non-directional tyres.
