Studies on wear mechanics of tire are classified to three categories; analytical study, study on indoor and outdoor evaluation, application of computational mechanics. The performance of tire wear is related to resource saving and is incompatible with other environmental performances such as rolling resistance. Hence the study on tire wear becomes important. In this article, the analytical wear model studied by Schallamach and Turner, methods of indoor and outdoor evaluation for tire wear, and the application of computational mechanics will be reviewed.
