New Specification for Standard Specification for 225/45R17 94V XL Radial Standard Reference Test Tire

1. Scope

1.1 This specification covers the general requirements for the 225/45R17 94V XL radial standard reference test tire. The tire covered by this specification is primarily for use as a reference tire for abrasion rate evaluations of normal, snow and special use tires as defined by ISO 4223-1, but may also be used for other evaluations. For the general requirements of severe snow use tires as defined by ISO 4223-1, refer to Fbbbb.


SRTT; Radial Standard Reference Test Tire; 225/45R17 94V XL


New proposed standard for a 17” summer reference test tire to be used for a UNECE methodology for measuring tire abrasion, currently under development by the UNECE GRBP TFTA (Task Force on Tyre Abrasion).
Tire abrasion rate for C1 tires is to be enforced in Europe through the upcoming Euro7 regulation, targeted as early as end of 2025.
This summer SRTT is also intended to be used as a reference in ISO 18511-1 “Vehicle method for measurement of tyre-to-road abrasion rate” (ISO document currently under development by the ISO TC31 WG13).

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
