Tyre testing

What are the set of conditions necessary in order to extract the maximum performance from the tyres?
This question can only be answered by first testing the tyres in controlled situations. Stability rig testing can give good qualitative and quantitative information about a particular tyre’s characteristics. The data can then be used to construct tyre models so that the interaction of driver, car and tyres can be simulated and studied.
