Our experts can analyze the durability and endurance of tires through a variety of methods. We test to common NHTSA standards including FMVSS No. 139 and 119 as well as other international government standards, intermodal standards, and custom test protocols.
All Smithers laboratories are ISO 17025 accredited and certified to perform the following durability and endurance tests:
- Endurance (including stepped up load)
- High speed durability
- Tire strength (plunger energy)
- Bead unseat (push-off)
Our test methods include cycles to standard and cycles to failure for a variety of evaluation areas, including but not limited to:
- Inflation pressure
