Abstract:

Rolling resistance and steering forces were measured on six tyres in a variety of field conditions. The six tyres covered the range of tread pattern and loads that are currently in use in agriculture on tractor front wheels, implements and trailers. Tractor rear tyre sizes and driven wheels were not used for this work. A correlation was found between coefficient of rolling resistance and mobility number.
