Abstract:

This report is a record of comparative traction and flotation tests of 2.5-ton 6 x 6 trucks equipped with low pressure tires versus high pressure tires, with emphasis on mud performance. Available data on general service durability, which is deemed satisfactory, are included in the report. The report concludes that mud performance of these vehicles is increased by the use of low pressure tires and recommends their adoption as standard equipment.
