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

CenTiRe continues to seek and welcome new industry and government agency members to join with our existing members in its mission to conduct leading-edge, pre-competitive research. Membership is a cost-effective means to conduct research, with a company’s membership fee greatly leveraged by other member’s fees and NSF grants.  Through participation in the Center, a company's or agency's annual membership fee is greatly leveraged (about 90x) by the other members' fees and NSF grants obtained by the faculty.  Come Join Us
