Race Car Tuner Tire Dynamics presents the Tuner with the dynamics of a rolling tire to demonstrate tire hysteresis. Featuring animation the contact patch and sidewall forces and stresses are shown. Tread distortion is clearly illustrated showing the relationship of lateral force, longitudinal force and slip angle to tire grip. Graphs of the adhesion level and forces on the tire are a vital elements for a tuner to understand to tune and select tires as well as determine alignment, shock settings, and geometry.
