What Happens If a Tread Detaches After a Tire Deflates?
This article describes a test program designed to determine if disturbance responses due to rapid deflation was measurably greater when a larger than specified sized tire was rapidly deflated. In the course of this testing, a deflated tire lost its tread, leading to the examination of the difference between rapidly deflated front tire with and without tread detachment. The tests found increased responses in measured hand wheel torque, lateral acceleration and yaw rate when the tread detached from the already flat tire.
