Getting to grips with the tire

A tire consists in a bottom part fixed to the wheel rim, side walls which have to absorb the tire's deformations and a tread which is in direct contact with the ground and ensures adherence.

The sometimes complex architecture beneath this tread enables the tire to resist deformations caused by the speed and weight of the vehicle borne.
