Abstract:

A test program has been conducted to compare the wear characteristics of conventional retread and precured retread 900 X 20 tires. An M-35 2 12 ton truck with a 5000 pound highway load was driven 9000 miles on a combination of paved, secondary and cross country surfaced roads with each type of retread tire in this evaluation. The precured retread tires exhibited about 10 less wear than the conventional retread tires on this test based on sample means. The precured tires were also more consistent in wear resistance.
