Rolling Resistance

Fuel prices and greater awareness about the role tires have in improving fuel economy has created renewed interest in rolling resistance evaluations. A tires rolling resistance impacts on fuel economy through a combination of heat loss, aerodynamic drag and the friction between tires and road surfaces. To assist in consistent evaluation, tests are conducted to industry standards including SAE J1269, SAE J2452, and ISO 8767:1992, ISO 28580. Rolling resistance can be performed on the following tire types:

  • Bicycle
  • Passenger and Light Truck
  • Medium-Duty Truck
  • Super Single Truck
  • Dual Assemblies
  • OTR
  • Tow Motor
  • Motorcycle
