Bible of the Industry
The Tyre & Rim Association of Australia Standards Manual is revised on an annual basis to include the advances of new technical data for tyres and rims, so that the Manual reflects the latest world wide standards for these products within the jurisdiction of the Association.
The tyre size proliferation of the last decade continues.
Passenger tyre sizes have eased a little, but with Light Truck and Agricultural this proliferation continues. Joining these now are Industrial tyre sizes. Whilst not a high profile market in Australia, it does move large volumes, and relevant data is most valuable for the marketer, distributor and end user.
This new data is sourced from the Tire & Rim Association Inc. in the USA, and the European Tyre & Rim Technical Organisation, both being the world’s premier technical bodies. This ensures that the Tyre & Rim Association of Australia Standards Manual remains updated and comprehensive.
The Standards Manual is the “bible” of the industry and is a valuable tool for all those involved with tyres and rims, whether from sales, design or technical disciplines.
