THE NOISE AND TRACTION CHARACTERISTICS OF BIAS PLY TRUCK TIRES. VOLUME 1. NOISE AND DRY TRACTION FINDINGS

The project has established a data base of noise and traction characteristics for a sample of bias-ply heavy truck tires. The tire sample, representing both 'rib' and 'lug' type tread patterns, was tested according to the SAE J-57 tire noise procedure and in a variety of laboratory and over-the-road traction experiments. Dry-pavement traction results show that the noisier lug-type tires exhibit traction properties which are generally less desirable from the viewpoint of their influence on vehicle response to steering and braking.
