A tyre is a ring-shaped component that surrounds a wheel’s rim. They are used to transfer a vehicle’s load from the axle through the wheel to the ground. Also, it provides traction on the surface over which the wheel travels.
Most tyres, such as those for automobiles and bicycles, are pneumatically inflated structures. These also provide a flexible cushion that absorbs shock as the tyre rolls over rough features on the surface.
Tyres provide a footprint, called a contact patch. It’s design stands to match the weight of the vehicle with the bearing strength of the surface that it rolls over. The actualization of this comes by providing a bearing pressure that will not deform the surface excessively.
