Significance and Use
This test method establishes a standard procedure of comparative testing, for driven wheel rim slip, between candidate tire group(s) and a control tire group. This test method is suitable for research and development purposes where tire and rim specimens are compared during a brief testing time period. They may not be suitable for regulatory or specification acceptance purposes because the values obtained may not necessarily agree or correlate, either in rank order or absolute value, with those obtained under other conditions (for example, different locations or different seasonal time periods on the same test course).
1.1 This test method is performed to determine the amount of rotational slip occurring at the tire/wheel interface while under heavy longitudinal load conditions.
1.2 This test method is suitable for research and development purposes where tires are compared during a single series of tests. They may not be suitable for regulatory statutes or specification acceptance because the values obtained may not necessarily agree or correlate either in rank order or absolute performance level with those obtained under other environmental conditions on other surfaces or the same surface after additional use.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
