Tests were conducted to determine the road performance and life of tires (MVSS109 Test, Programmed Faults and New) determined to have anomalies by NDT techniques, their relation to highway safety, evaluate Non Destructive Test as a tool for identifying anomalies and to supply a data base for updating of MVSS109. Limited correlation was obtained between Non Destructive Test and deficiencies found by cutting the tire. The method of Non Destructive Test was capable of predicting tire failure mode to a qualified level of reliability.
