Less Tire Wear

Test Method

We had actual taxis drive under the following conditions and measured the amount of tire wear on taxis equipped with Performance Dampers and taxis not equipped with Performance Dampers.
*Cooperation: Kanagawa Toyota Motor Sales Co., Ltd. / Asahi Taxi Co., Ltd.

  • 2 taxis with Performance Dampers / 2 taxis without Performance Dampers
  • Normal business driving
  • Started test with new tires
  • Driving Distance: 28,000 – 43,000 km

Test Results

Front Tire Wear: Approximately 14% reduction

Rear Tire Wear: Approximately 10% reduction

Test resulted that taxis with Performance Dampers had tire wear reduced by 14% on the front tires and 10% on the rear tires compared to taxis without Performance Dampers. Possibly smooth cornering reduced excess steering wheel operation and reduced tire wear.
