Vehicle-related emissions are a majore contributor to urban particulate concentrations. One of the vehicle-related emission sources is tire wear. It is estimated that 3.2 x 10 to the 8th power to 7.2 x 10 to the 8th power kg of tire wear debris are generated each year in the United States. Particles from tire wear have been identified by microscopic analysis as a significant component of samples taken from roadside high volume particulate samplers. The currently available emission estimate for tire wear, presented in Compilation of Air Pollutant Emission Factors (AP-42), is 0.20 g/veh-mi for a four-wheeled light duty vehicle. This emission factor is widely used in regional particulate analyses to estimate emissions from tire wear; however, this factor needs to be reviewed, based on studies and test data released since its publication.
