Test Method for Measuring Ice Grip Performance of
Passenger Car Tyres
1 Scope
This document specifies the test method for measuring ice grip performance of passenger car
tyres on icy roads, including test conditions, test procedures, data processing, and tests using
reference tyres to test ice grip performance, as well as test reports.
This document is applicable to radial tyres of passenger cars.

GB/T 6326 Tyre Terms and Definitions
GB/T 33829 Test Method for Snow Grip Performance of Passenger Car Tyres
3 Terms and Definitions
What is defined in GB/T 6326 and GB/T 33829, and the following terms and definitions are
applicable to this document.
3.1 Ice Grip Index
Ice grip index refers to the ratio of the ice grip performance of tyres under test to the standard
test tyres.
3.2 Non-consecutive Sequence
Non-consecutive sequence refers to the test sequence carried out after the icy road surface is
refinished, or the test carried out on different test roads, or on different days.
4 Test Conditions
4.1 Road Surface Conditions
4.1.1 The test icy road surface shall be flat and smooth; the length and width shall be able to
satisfy the requirements of the relevant tests in this document; the slope shall be not greater
than 2%.
4.1.2 Before the test, pre-grinding shall be carried out. If watering is required, it should be
completed 1 h before the start of the test. The water used to prepare the icy surface shall be
clean. Before the start of the test, for the braking lines, non-test tyres shall be used to simulate
braking, until the force of friction becomes stabilized.
4.1.3 Use 225/60R16 98S standard test tyres to measure the ice grip performance on the icy
roads. The average deceleration of each test running-in shall be maintained between 0.97 m/s2
~ 1.72 m/s2.
4.2 Climatic Conditions
4.2.1 The ambient temperature range measured at about 1 m above the icy road is 21 C ~ 4
C; the temperature range of the icy road is 21 C ~ 5 C. The maximum relative humidity
of the test environment shall be lower than 90%.
4.2.2 During the test, direct exposure to the sun and sunlight, or relatively major changes in
humidity shall be avoided as much as possible; the wind speed should not be greater than 5 m/s.
4.3 Conditions of Test Vehicles
4.3.1 Select test vehicles in good condition, equipped with ABS system, and to which, tyres
under test and standard test tyres are applicable.
4.3.2 The test vehicles shall be equipped with calibrated sensors suitable for measurement under
cold and freezing conditions. The speed and distance data acquisition system shall have the
function of storing measurement results. The accuracy of the sensors and the system shall
satisfy: the relative uncertainty of the measured or calculated adequately emitted average
deceleration is less than 1%.
4.3.3 The test vehicles shall be in consecutive and mass production, and without any
modification that affects the braking characteristics. The load capacity of each wheel shall be
able to satisfy the requirements of the test load of the tyre under test. When the tyre load needs
to be increased, the vehicle may be counterweighted.
4.4 Test Measuring Instruments
4.4.1 The test measuring instruments shall be insensitive to vibrations, decelerations and
ambient temperature changes. All exposed parts shall be able to withstand 100% relative
humidity, dust, shock and vibration, and other unfavorable factors.
4.4.2 The speed of the test vehicle is measured by installing a non-contact speed measuring
instrument, for example, GPS. Within the ambient temperature range of 21 C ~ 4 C, the
maximum permissible errors:
a) Speed measurement:  0.5 km/h;
b) Distance measurement:  0.1 m.
4.4.3 During the test, the actual vehicle speed measured by the measuring instrument, or the
difference between the actual vehicle speed and the standard vehicle speed shall be displayed
in the vehicle in real time, so that the driver can adjust the vehicle speed in time.
4.4.4 The accuracy of the barometer shall be  5 kPa.
4.5 Tyre under Test
4.5.1 Select 225/60R16 98S standard test tyres, which shall comply with the requirements of
the corresponding domestic technical specifications of standard test tyres.
4.5.2 The tyres under test shall be produced in the same batch and reserved in the same
environment. Lint, bead and any foreign matters on the treads shall be eliminated.
4.5.3 Before the test, put the tyres under test on pilot run for at least 100 km on a dry pavement.
During the pilot run, changes in tread pattern depth, pattern block position and strip pattern
completeness shall be avoided.
4.5.4 The tyres under test shall be assembled near the test site. Mount the tyres under test on
the rim (measured rim or rim permitted to use) used by the test vehicle. In order to facilitate the
installation, an appropriate amount of lubricant is allowed to be used. All assembled tyres to be
tested shall be placed in the same outdoor environment for at least 2 h, then, the tyre inflation
pressure shall be adjusted to the value specified in the test.
4.5.5 Before the test, the surface of the tyres under test shall be clean and free of debris.
4.5.6 The inflation pressure of the tyres under test is 250 kPa. The load applied to the tyres is
60% ~ 90% of the corresponding load of the tyre load index. The difference between the tyre
loads on the same axle does not exceed 10%.
5 Test Procedures
5.1 In accordance with the requirements of 4.4, prepare the measuring instruments.
5.2 Use a temperature measuring device to measure the ambient temperature and the
temperature of the icy road surface. Use an anemometer to measure the wind speed.
