TYRE TESTING

REIFENTESTS

Independent testing, carried out by experts, provides many valuable aids to progress in automobile technology. This applies also to the development of tyres, although tyres are especially complex entities (100 sizes and many different influences of traffic, construction, weather and driving characteristics). The decisive qualities: driving characteristics, safety, economy and driving comfort are discussed in detail by the author. Special properties required on wet roads, in snow and ice, and in the case of particular road surface characteristics are also dealt with, especially from the point of view of safety and economy. The recommendation is that a maximum of care in experimental technique and precisely differentiated evaluation of the various properties is necessary for proper tyre testing. /TRRL/
