Self-supporting pneumatic tire.

U.S. patent: 7,093,633

Issued: August 22, 2006

Inventors: Johan Peter Dahlberg, Laurent Luigi Domencia Colantonio and Walter Dale Allen

Assigned: Goodyear Tire & Rubber

Key statement: The tire is molded in such a manner that ride comfort is improved, durability is increased, and a greater run-flat capability can be achieved. By molding the tire with a bead width less than the rim width, the sidewall inserts are not subjected to additional stress during and after inflation of the tire, and the strain energy is more evenly distributed through the sidewall pillar construction.
