COST AND SAFETY ASPECTS OF QUIET TIRE USE

Significant reductions in community noise levels near highways can be achieved by simultaneously controlling vehicle engine noise and tire noise. Tire noise remains an unsolved problem at highway speeds. Although at present no more than a superficial understanding of the mechanisms of tire noise generation exists, truck tire noise reductions can be accomplished utilizing current tire technology. From both a cost and safety point of view, the use of quieter tires provides at least equal, and, in general, advantageous performance when compared to current tire use practices.
