The service life of selected, most commonly used tire sizes installed on Highway Department trucks and sedans will be evaluated. Major manufacturers and other manufacturers (later defined) products will be studied to determine average service life. One half or four highway districts (1, 2, 7 and 8) will be involved in the project and the trucks used will be selected or assigned at random in these districts (The sedans used in the study will be Central Office pool vehicles). A progress record for each tire and use record for each vehicle with regular report or measurement times to be specified will be required. A cost per vehicle mile operation for the various specified brands of tires shall results.
