Revision of F538-21 Standard Terminology Relating to Characteristics and Performance of Tires


- Match definition for light truck tire to recently approved F2663 - Match definition for candidate tire set to recently approved F1650 - Match definition for skid number to F408 and removed definitions for braking coefficient and sliding braking coefficient to consolidate with F408. Note: standards from committee E17 were reviewed and are not affected by this change. - Eliminate Discussion paragraph and merge essence of information into definition, as reviewed in
F09.94 committee meeting on May 18th 2022, for terminologies “control tire (set)” and “outboard sidewall (OBS)” - Change word gage to gauge because gage is the spelling of an obsolescent word meaning a pledge, a challenge, etc., and gauge is the spelling to use when you measure measurement, estimate, or standard. (see - Add reference F2803 or F1572 to select terminologies to reflect recent adjustments
