Handling and stability problems are typically revealed under limit performance maneuvering conditions where tires are pushed to high slip angles under high normal loading conditions. This paper reviews vehicle dynamics handling and stability models relative to tire characteristics and examines tire testing data obtained under normal and extreme maneuvering conditions. Tire data is normalized according to design characteristics in order to reveal basic maneuvering behavior that is relatively independent of size and construction. Computer simulation analysis is used to demonstrate the influence of tire characteristics on handling and stability.
