2023 Revisions to the Tyre and Rim Assn Standards Manual

The Standards Manual 2023 edition is available now in an ONLINE licence version – or the Printed Manual.

On an annual basis, the Tyre & Rim Association of Australia Standards Manual is updated to incorporate the latest technical data advancements for tyres and rims. The manual encompasses the most up-to-date global standards for these products.

The following sections have undergone changes in the 2023 edition:

  • Passenger – more sizes in the new range of High Load “HL” sizes have been included.  Additional sizes of Metric Radial Ply tyres have been introduced.  A large range of P Type Radial Ply Tyres, which are being sold in Australia, have been returned to the Passenger Section.
  • TRA Inc (USA) has adopted substantial changes to the relevant load formulae for the Metric LT range.  These changes to the published loads have been adopted in our 2023 edition.
  • 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.  A small range of Metric Radial Ply R-2 drive tyres has been introduced.
  • Industrial – a new range of High Load Solid Pressed Tyres has been added, as well as some other new sizes.
  • Motorcycle – new sizes & data added.

Relevant data is most valuable for tyre size selection, application and performance for the marketer, distributor, and end user.

The new data incorporated in the Tyre & Rim Association of Australia Standards Manual is obtained from the world’s premier technical bodies, the Tire & Rim Association Inc. in the USA and the European Tyre & Rim Technical Organization. This guarantees that the manual remains current and comprehensive.

Keeping the industry updated, the latest version of the Standards Manual serves as a valuable tool for everyone involved with tyres and rims, including those in sales, design, or technical roles.
