At the Kloosterzande test track in the Netherlands, noise measurements of 22 summer car tyres have been performed on 23 different road surfaces, including an ISO-surface.All measurements have been performed with a CPX-trailer at 50 and 80 km/h. A frequency analysis of all combinations of tyres and road surfaces has been made. A ranking analysis of noise levels is included, where the ranking on the on the ISO-surface is compared to the ranking on the other 22 surfaces. Furthermore, a relationship between different texture parameters and the noise levels has been studied.Between the noisiest tyre on the noisiest road surface, and the quietest tyre on the quietest road surface, a difference of 17 dB was found. The difference in road surface noise performance is the most significant reason for this large number.
