Webinar: An Overview of Global Winter Tire Traction and Performance Testing Methods
Typical evaluations for tire performance in snow and icy conditions have been developed and modified by several standards bodies over the years for both tire labeling requirements as well as to understand performance benchmarks. There are regional and country specific differences in test methods and regulatory requirements that can be challenging for tire manufacturers, distributors, and evaluators to navigate.

In this one-hour webinar, Smithers expert Eric Pierce discusses an overview of several global test methods, how they compare, and how they’ve changed in recent years. The presentation will cover:

• ASTM F1805
- 14” to 16” SRTT transition
- Differences between US, Canada, and EU
- USTMA ratings vs UNECE R117
- Canada 2020 version
- US 2006 version
• UNECE R117
- C1 and C2 Brake testing
- C3 Acceleration testing
- Proposed C1 ice tire test – ISO 19447

There will be a brief Q&A session at the end of the presentation. The webinar will be recorded for future downloads.
