Tire Tread Wear Testing

Tire tread wear evaluations involve subjecting tires under development to real-world forces and motions in the test lab, typically using a rotating drum and loading the tire while causing it to rotate, as a means of determining tire tread wear properties and tire life. Such tests run for extended periods of time, often lasting several weeks or even months. The resulting test data helps tire manufacturers hone in on the ideal balance between tire performance and handling with their designs, based on a tire’s intended vehicle type and recommended usage.

With more than 40 years of automotive testing technology leadership, MTS offers unmatched software, hardware and expertise for ensuring the most accurate and repeatable tire tread wear testing capabilities possible. MTS Tire Tread Wear Simulation Systems quickly replicate tread wear and precisely control tire forces and motions in the lab, enabling you to efficiently capture wear rate or troubleshoot potential issues at an early stage of development. Our tire tread wear offering includes:

Specialized tire tread wear test systems that integrate seamlessly with advanced 
   software and digital controls to ensure highly accurate tread wear replication
Intuitive application software for quickly and easily configuring and running tests
Digital controllers that make it easy to control lateral force, wheel torque, normal load
   and inclination angle simultaneously
