Center for Tire Research
An NSF Industry/University Cooperative Research Center

The Center for Tire Research (CenTiRe) is not made up of buildings and labs, although it makes use of these facilities in its work. CenTiRe is people – engineers, chemists, scientists, and managers from our member companies and agencies; faculty and students from our two university sites; and administrative staff. All these people play a critical role in the creation of the leading-edge, pre-competitive research carried out at the Center that provides value to our members and experience to our faculty and students.
