Passenger Car Tire Performance Requirements and Test Procedures
- Ground Vehicle Standard
This SAE Standard provides minimum performance requirements and accompanying uniform laboratory test procedures for evaluating certain essential characteristics of new tires and newly retreaded tires intended for use on passenger cars.
(The requirements published in this SAE Standard pertain to tire sizes currently used on American passenger cars and popular sizes used on imported passenger cars. For related information on tire sizes not listed, contact SAE Automotive Headquarters, 18121 East Eight Mile Road, East Detroit, Michigan 48021.)
Data Sets - Support Documents
To plan and execute a cooperative tire test development program, to evaluate the fatigue endurance performance of light duty highway tires. Activities will include empirical comparisons of tire performance on the various, proposed tests, together with evaluating reasonable relationships to tire usage and durability performance on the highway.
