The study concerning the contact between a tyre and the road surface was conducted in three phases. In the first phase the first and second-order factors were separated. The factors: type of road surface, tyre type, tread depth, water depth, tyre pressure and tyre load were included in an experimental multifactor investigation. Each of them appeared to affect the brake and sideway forces. Only the influence of the tyre pressure and load was found to be insignificant or very small. The second phase served to determine the numerical influence of the road surface characteristics and the speed on the size of the brake and sideway forces. It was found possible to com...
