Chinese term or phrase: 周向切面
装置的后缘应处在最靠近它的轮胎周向切面之前300 mm
My question relates to 周向. Googling gives me 'circumferential', which doesn't sound quite right. Can this be 'tangential to the outer surface of the tire' (assuming 切面means tangential)?. All input appreciated.

Thank-you. In fact, this was a translation from English originally, and I think the translators didn't know exactly how to phrase the CHinese. Rather difficult technical issue. I certainly see your point and appreciate the input.
