Noise Regulations-Impacts and Restraints 762036

The paper provides the reader with an overview of noise regulation and its potential impact on the tire industry.
The author investigates existing techniques for measuring the sound levels of tires. They do not accurately do this because they do not give meaningful and repeatable data.
Tire noise regulations should be deferred until suitable test procedures are developed. Also regulations should be national not local, the author states and the cost of such regulations to both consumer and manufacturer must be balanced against the benefits.
