The paper is a part of study regarding the tire dynamic. In this paper the authors realize a set of lateral force tire testing. In order to evaluate the relationship between lateral force variation and tire wear, we have designed several testing programs by using virtually the same type of vehicles, running on in tandem on the same selected driving course for the same distance and relative speeds.
