Mechanical Properties of Radial Tires 730500

Vehicle/tire system performance is mainly influenced by mechanical properties. This discussion is devoted to radial tires in general, although the data are mostly derived from tests of steel belted radials. Also covered are dimension, handling, ride, traction, noise, and power loss performance of the same tire.
The authors conclude that no generic class of tire construction or particular design evaluated thus far is unquestionably superior for every performance parameter, although performance differences between generic classes of tires can be defined statistically.
