The report describes the procedure, instrumentation, and data analysis used to telemeter, record, and analyze truck tire sound and vibration. The tire sound signal was monitored at a point approximately one foot to the rear of the tire and was recorded simultaneously with the telemetered tire sidewall vibration signal. Thirteen 10:00-20 bias-ply, tube-type truck tires were evaluated. The data for the tires tested are cataloged and presented here through level, time domain, and frequency domain analyses. The parameters investigated include: speed, wear, load, tread pattern, and pavement texture. The data presented show the relationship of tire vibration to the sound generated. Analyses show nearly a one-to-one correspondence in the changes in levels of both vibration and sound signals under the conditions investigated.
