Tyre force and moment properties are one of the fundamental properties for tyre vehicle stability. This paper reports the effect of tyre design variables on force and moment properties. Four popular sizes of the Indian car tyre have been taken in this study which outlines the effect of construction, aspect ratio, and other variables like belt angle etc. It has been noticed that radial tyre generates higher force and moments vis-a-vis a bias tyre. With decrease in aspect ratio, the force proportionally increases improving the cornering stability at high speed. The study also shows that a tyre having higher stiffness shows higher cornering force. Thus this paper projects the significance of tyre force and moment properties for total vehicle control.
