Title (EN) IMPROVED RIM FOR RUM-FLAT TIRE ASSEMBLIES
(FR) JANTE AMELIOREE POUR ENSEMBLES PNEUMATIQUES AVEC POSSIBILITE DE ROULAGE A PLAT
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An improved rim for a run-flat tire assembly is provided that eliminates recesses or pockets along the radially inner surface of the rim where materials can accumulate undesirably during vehicle operation. One or more circumferential grooves are provided along the outer surface of the rim in order to offset any mass increase due to the elimination of the recesses. In certain embodiments, the radially inner surface may also be provided with certain characteristics that assist in evacuating materials from the inner surface.
(FR)L'invention concerne une jante améliorée destinée à un ensemble pneumatique à possibilité de roulage à plat permettant de supprimer des évidements et des poches le long de la surface radiale interne de ladite jante pouvant accumuler des matériaux indésirables pendant le fonctionnement d'un véhicule. Une ou plusieurs rainures circonférentielles sont prévues le long de la surface extérieure de la jante afin de compenser une augmentation de masse quelconque due à la suppression des évidements. Dans certains modes de réalisation, la surface radiale interne peut également être dotée de caractéristiques qui facilitent l'élimination des matériaux de ladite surface interne.
