ROLLING RESISTANCE OF LIGHT TRUCK TIRES

The supplement contains carpet plots of 44 light truck tires giving rolling resistance versus load and reciprocal of inflation pressure. The plots represent measured data. To avoid the expense of taking measurements at all points on the plots, an equation is used which predicts rolling resistance of the tire for loads and inflation values where no measurements were taken.
