Automotive pneumatic tyre plays an important role in the vehicle suspension system. The selection of the tyre used is vital in improving the vehicle handling and performance. Formula Varsity is a student based formula style racing competition that was organized since 2006 by Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Universiti Teknikal Malaysia Melaka (UTeM). The competition challenges students from Malaysian IPTA/IPTS/Polytechnics to design, analyze, build and race the working model of a racing car in real track condition. The competition was inspired by similar event named as Formula SAE® organized yearly in major countries around the world by the Society of Automotive Engineers. Experience and valuable knowledge gathered from the previous event has brought up various rooms of improvements for the new race car such as improving cornering ability and handling properties to enable higher power-to-weight ratio and less oversteer and understeer to be achieved thus resulting in a more efficient and competitive race car. Responding towards similar goal, this project was conducted to create an experimental method called road test to determine the best tyre to be fitted in the new race car and at the same time has good handling properties compared to its predecessor.
