THE EFFECTS OF TIRE WEAR ON VEHICLE BEHAVIOR

This paper discusses the cornering characteristics during the progress of tire wear and how the stability and controllability of a vehicle varies in the various stages of tire wear. With the introduction of tire parameters appropriate to represent the characteristics of tire construction, the method of calculation of the cornering characteristics of a tire is proposed in this paper. Furthermore, this paper shows the values of tire parameters in the various stages of tire wear in both cases of bias belted and radial tires.
