Abstract

Since the 1950's the radial ply tyre has gradually penetrated all fields of ground transportation to the situation today where it enjoys a dominant position, particularly in the Western World where road surfaces are of a high standard. The advantages offered by the radial ply construction for passenger car and road vehicle applications are well known, although their lack of robustness has prevented their more general adoption in areas where roads are of an inadequate standard.
