Abstract

Experiments using a specially designed device were conducted to determine the performance characteristics of tractor tires under various conditions. Radial ply tires showed superior performance over bias ply tires. Soil had a greater influence on traction capabilities than did tire design. Traction prediction equations for radial ply tires were developed.
