The Test World ASTM Traction truck is designed for testing tyres according to the ASTM 1805 test standard for single wheel driving traction in a straight line on snow-covered surfaces.
The standard helps drivers to identify tyres that provide a higher level of snow traction. Tyres meeting the standard are branded with the three-peak mountain snowflake (3PMSF) symbol. The test method employs an instrumented, rear-wheel drive test vehicle – the Test World Traction Truck – to measure average longitudinal and vertical forces acting on the test tyre under acceleration.
