Australian Standard References for Vehicle and Vehicle Accessories Industries

The 2017 Tyre and Rim Standards Manual is a necessary reference for all tyre and wheel manufacturers and retailers, as well as vehicle and implement manufacturers, vehicle service organisations, transport authorities, government bodies, road and traffic authorities, fleet operators, agricultural vehicle and machinery users. Current Standards Manuals are a nominated standard for many Australian Design Rules (pertaining to the design and manufacture of automotive products) and State Transport and motor vehicle regulations.

Previous editions of the Manual are obsolete.

Revisions to the 2017 Tyre and Rim Assn Standards Manual

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.
