Title (EN) LATERAL DISCONTINUITIES HAVING THICKNESSES INCREASING FROM SHOULDER TO CENTER OF TIRE TREAD
(FR) DISCONTINUITÉS LATÉRALES AYANT DES ÉPAISSEURS AUGMENTANT DE L'ÉPAULEMENT AU CENTRE DE LA BANDE DE ROULEMENT DE PNEU
Abstract:
(EN) Embodiments include a tire tread having a plurality of tread elements and a plurality of lateral discontinuities arranged along the tread width and tread length, each of the plurality of tread elements being spaced apart by one of the plurality of lateral discontinuities. The tread width is divided into a plurality of regions, the plurality of regions including: (1) a pair of outermost regions, each outermost region being arranged closest to one of the pair of opposing lateral sides of the tread, and (2) at least one centermost region is arranged closest to the longitudinal centerline of the tread. Each of the lateral discontinuities have a thickness, where the thickness of one or more of the lateral discontinuities arranged in each of the outermost regions is smaller than the thickness of one or more of the lateral discontinuities arranged in the centermost region.
(FR) Des modes de réalisation de l'invention concernent une bande de roulement de pneu ayant une pluralité d'éléments de bande de roulement et une pluralité de discontinuités latérales agencées le long de la largeur de bande de roulement et de la longueur de bande de roulement, chacun de la pluralité d'éléments de bande de roulement étant espacé par l'une de la pluralité de discontinuités latérales. La largeur de bande de roulement est divisée en une pluralité de régions, la pluralité de régions comprenant : (1) une paire de régions les plus à l'extérieur, chaque région la plus à l'extérieur étant agencée la plus proche d'un côté parmi la paire de côtés latéraux opposés de la bande de roulement, et (2) au moins une région la plus centrale qui est agencée la plus proche de la ligne centrale longitudinale de la bande de roulement. Chacune des discontinuités latérales a une épaisseur, l'épaisseur d'une ou de plusieurs des discontinuités latérales agencées dans chacune des régions les plus à l'extérieur étant inférieure à l'épaisseur d'une ou de plusieurs des discontinuités latérales agencées dans la région la plus centrale.
