Goodyear Tire & Rubber, Akron, OH, has signed an exclusive agreement with Amerityre to jointly develop urethane tires with the ultimate objective of replacing rubber automotive tires. Amerityre is said to have developed what early tests show may be a viable compound for production of urethane tires. Manufacturing a urethane tire could potentially offer significant product advantages and tremendously efficient and cost-effective manufacturing processes requiring less capital investment than for traditional rubber tires, according to the companies. Amerityre, while continuing to develop its material for automotive tires, sells flat-free urethane foam bicycle tires called Airriders. It has also developed flat-free tires for garden tractors and wheelbarrows.
