This document specifies test methods for verifying the capabilities of tyres for passenger cars. Of the test methods presented, it is possible that only some will be required depending on the construction of the tyre (diagonal, bias-belted, radial or T-type construction) to be tested. The tests are carried out in a laboratory under controlled conditions.
This document includes endurance tests, a low-pressure performance test, high-speed tests and requirements for bead unseating and tyre strength.
The test methods presented in this document are not intended for gradation of tyre performance or quality levels. This document applies to all passenger car tyres.
