Title: CUSHION TIRE
Abstract:
A replaceable non-pneumatic vehicle tire which comprises a resilient tire band attached to the outer face of the wheel rim. Conformity to the ground surface is accomplished with use of compression elastomer springs bonded to the tire band. Tire band is secured by fitting circumferential beads of the band into undercut grooves located on the outer face of the wheel rim. It can be also secured using simple V- grooves provided to the wheel rim. The tire is compact and easy to manufacture. It can be engineered to have improved rolling resistance and grip to the ground surface.
