Road Impact Testing

Designed to mimic pothole and curb strike impacts, road impact testing can provide a better understanding of your wheel’s performance against these hazards. Smithers can test to a variety of common industry test methods:
  • SAE J175 – Provides an evaluation of curb impact properties on the wheel
  • SAE 1981- Evaluates performance against frontal impact on tire and wheel assemblies 

Drop Impact Testing

Drop impact testing involves a standardized weight and striker heads used to impact the wheel from specific angles and heights. Smithers can provide testing on wheels up to 42” in diameter and can conduct both industry and OEM standards.
