Some engineers say that it may be desirable to adjust inflation pressures downward to minimize the potential for tire damage when running on a chassis dyno. But they are reluctant to recommend this without complete assurance that proper operating inflation pressures will be restored before the vehicle is returned to regular service.

Illustrative photos and additional information on dyno testing options is available in the "Radial Tire Conditions Analysis Guide," published by the Technology and Maintenance Council, which can be ordered by calling 703-838-1763.

It is highly recommended that a reliable tire industry engineer or technician be consulted for specific advice prior to running a truck equipped with regular service tires on a chassis dyno. This could save expensive tire casing damage, more a concern today with modern long mileage and retreadable radial tires.
