Crack growth in tires plays an important role in the durability of tires, and it is necessary to evaluate the characteristics of crack growth accurately. Since a tire is subjected to interlaminar shear stresses, a Mode III fatigue test method was developed. The fatigue life of three different tire specimens was measured by using the fatigue test method. Based on the fatigue test results, the effects of heat aging, temperature and belt stiffness on crack growth were analyzed.
