The wheel must meet the following requirements when the vehicle is positioned in the horizontal road, and in kerb mass, with its wheel on the position of straight running.
a. in the part formed by radial plane at an angle of 300 to the front and 500 to the rear of the center of the wheel (see Fig. 1), the overall width of the wheel guards Q must be at least sufficient to cover the total width ‘. in the case of twin wheels, the total width over the two tyres shall he taken into account
Note: tyre width shall be the maximum width specified or recommended by the manufacturer, not including the brands, remarks decorations and protective bands and ribs.
