The vertical response characteristics of several tire models were mathematically analysed by computer program. The results from the computation were compared with those from experiments. The tire models mentioned in this paper are evaluated. Finally, a modified point contact tire model has been proposed. The validity of it was then examined by experiment with tires 6.50-16 and 6.50R16.
