We used a tire durometer gauge to discern the varying hardness of each tire. Of course the hardness of tires will change over time, but this gave us a good starting point for comparison. Whether you are testing tires for your competition 4x4 or your drag racer, a tool like this from Intercomp is the hot ticket. We got ours through Summit Racing, home of all things automotive.
