Tire testing

Testing is very important part of tire development process. Benchmark tests indicate tire performance compared to the other brands, while development tests show the performance differences of prototype versions. Test results are tools for tire developers to make sure that the product meets the desired performance target.

BD Testing can offer wide range of tests, for example objective tests like braking and acceleration tests, aquaplaning and noise measurements, and subjective handling tests. Test are done on snow and ice tracks, and wet and dry asphalt. Our standard test procedures meet the tire industry requirements, but we can also use customer specifications. We can offer also many special tests, for example road wear test for studded tires, stud force and protrusion measurements and stud retention testing. In addition, we can offer performance tests also for TBR and OTR tires. We are using proven and reliable measurement equipment, and continuously monitor the quality and reliability of the test results.
