An experimental multifactor research is set up to monitor the friction forces between the road pavement and the tyre. By a literature study and a number of measured characteristics of the road pavement and the tyre, an expectation is expressed of the magnitude of the influence of factors and interactions on the coefficients of friction. The tyre load and the tyre tension have no important influence. The coefficient of friction depends on type of surface, speed, type of tyre, type of tyre tread and the thickness of the water layer.
