TYRES get very little attention of the inquisitive sort from those whose business it is to incorporate them in the aircraft. The only information that is usually required (and given) is the load‐deflection curve (obtained experimentally) and the overall dimensions, and that is all that is necessary for most purposes. Yet a theoretical investigation of tyre behaviour should be useful from the following aspects:
