- Wear performance is the key performance to measure the service life of the tire, and the tire crown is the most severely worn part of the tire. The 205/55R16 longitudinal groove radial tire was simulated and studied, and the driving conditions of the vehicle under different working conditions were simulated and analyzed with the frictional energy loss rate and ground pressure deflection value as the evaluation indicators. Through modeling analysis, the influence of different tire pressures and loads on tire wear was studied. The wear conditions under different slip angles are analyzed, and the results show that the ground contact pressure of the tires is unevenly distributed under the side slip angles of 2°, 4°, and 6°, which will cause uneven tire wear.
