Self-supporting pneumatic tire.
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.
