Don't bother. The testing that will prove this is going to trash the tires under braking. The only other way would be to do skid pad testing of lateral G's - but that's going to trash the tires, too!

Not to mention that heat in the tread compound is going to affect the test results, so the only way to get a good test is to have many tires already mounted up and a guy standing by to do the changeover.
