TRA Rim Contour Inspection Materials

The Tire and Rim Association has available RIM CONTOUR INSPECTION MATERIALS used for the measurement of rim profiles to TRA standard dimensions. This equipment consists primarily of sliding and one-piece templates to measure the rim profile (flange contour, bead seat, well location, etc.) and disk tapes to measure the bead seat diameter (circumferentially). Inspection procedures and additional explanations are provided in Section 8 of the Year Book and in the video links below.

All inspection material can be ordered from the TRA Office. Prepayment by check or credit card is required (Shipping and Handling will be added and depends on the size of the order).  All inspection material is custom made to order.  Please allow 6 to 8 weeks for delivery of rim profile equipment and 3 to 4 weeks for disk tapes.
