THE SEARCH FOR A SAFE POLICE TIRE
Tires form one of the major subsystems of an automobile. In 1976, the International Association of Chiefs of Police conducted a survey of 379 police agencies to learn what their most serious tire problems were. These and other important data and information on tread wear, high speed and traction performance and maintenance were published in NBS Special Publication 480-33 entitled, "Guide to High Speed Patrol Car Tires".
