2022 Revisions to the Tyre and Rim Assn Standards Manual

The Standards Manual 2022 edition is available now in an ONLINE licence version – or the Printed 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. The Manual includes the latest world-wide standards for these products.

In the 2022 edition there are changes in the following sections:

  • Passenger – a new range of High Load “HL” sizes is introduced.  These tyres carry a higher load at the same Reference Pressure as the current Extra Load Tyres.  Additional sizes of Metric Radial Ply tyres have been introduced
  • Radial Light Truck Metric Tyres have undergone a revision to the tyre load formula and additional sizes are now included.
  • Agricultural – Metric Radial Ply tyre range has new sizes in almost all applications – Tractor Drive and Steer Wheel, Implement, Construction and Harvesting.  This applies also to ranges of “IF” (high flexion) and “VF” (very high flexion) sizes.
  • Industrial – additional sizes & data
  • Motorcycle – additional sizes & data

Relevant data is most valuable for tyre size selection, application and performance 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 Organization, both being the world’s premier technical bodies. This ensures that the Tyre & Rim Association of Australia Standards Manual remains updated and comprehensive.

The latest version of the Standards Manual is most important to keep industry updated and is a valuable tool for all involved with tyres and rims, whether from sales, design, or technical purpose.
