In-Depth Tire Analysis

Pressure Mapping: Tire Analysis
Capture static or dynamic tire footprint pressure patterns for tire tread and performance analysis.


Analyze tire performance and tread to optimize tire designs and benchmark against competitive products


Tire manufacturers need to understand the changes of a tire under various loads and applications to improve handling and response. Tekscan pressure mapping system provides insight for a better understanding of tire design and how the tire interacts with road surfaces. Analyzing a tire footprint with pressure mapping allows engineers to see how their design improves:

  • NVH (noise, vibration, and harshness)
  • Overall performance
  • Fuel economy
  • Longevity or wear


Our Pressure Mapping Solutions for Tire Design

Tekscan tire analysis solutions capture valuable interface pressure insights to address growing market demands. Intuitive, application-specific graphing and image analysis software also enables quantitative and qualitative analysis of your tire design in ways the finite element analysis (FEA) cannot.
