GRRF-77-01 | US proposal for amendments to the draft GTR on Tyres Preliminary tests using the draft GTR procedures on tires in the US market have raised concerns that a wet traction index value requirement for "all-season tires" (as used in the US) will be needed since these tires fall outside the tire types addressed by the GTR. The US proposes language to address this situation.
