Designing a Radial Tire for MPV's 902245

The increased popularity of MPV's (multi-purpose vehicles such as light trucks, passenger vans, and utility vehicles) during the 1980's has created an expanding vehicle market segment. These vehicles operate under a wide range of inflation and loading conditions which require all-season and off-road performance.
Through the use of high technology computer-aided engineering (CAE) tools and testing methods, unique MPT (multi-purpose tire) concepts have been developed which reduce trade-offs and optimize overall tire performance.
