This SAE Standard applies to the usage of tires of the same nominal size and tread type, but with different outside diameter for articulated front-end loaders. Articulated four-wheel-drive front-end loader performance and component life can be affected by excessive differences in the tire outside circumference and/or diameter. The purpose is to provide specific guidelines for the usage of tires with different outside circumference and/or diameter on articulated front-end loaders.
Rationale: This standard has been revised to remove dates from the referenced documents in Section 2.1 for "Related Publications". Statement "Unless otherwise specified, the latest issue of SAE publications shall apply."
