CLAIMS
1. For a wheeled vehicle having conventional pneumatic 2 tires mounted on the rims of the wheels, a device for reducing lateral sheer deformation of a tire comprising:

4 (a) a ring plate connected to the inboard side of a wheel upon which the tire is mounted and annular to the rim

6 of the wheel, the ring plate substantially abutting an inboard side wall of the tire continuously around the tire

8 and extending from the rim radially outward therefrom, and

(b) a plurality of circumferentially spaced openings 0 defined by said ring plate sufficiently sized and disposed to allow an external tire removal means to extend 2 therethrough and gain access to the tire in order to break an adhesive seal between the tire bead and a rim bead flange 4 on the inboard side.

2. For a wheeled vehicle having conventional pneumatic 2 tires mounted on the rims of the wheels, a device . for reducing lateral sheer deformation of a tire comprising:

4 (a) a ring plate affixed to the inboard side of the wheel and annular to the rim of the wheel, the ring plate

6 being adjacent an inboard sidewall of the tire and extending from the wheel rim radially outward therefrom, an inner

8 margin of the ring plate being lodged between a rim bead flange of the wheel and the tire, and securely held there 0 by pressure applied by the sidewall of the tire, and
(b) at least one pair of inward opening notches defined 2 by an inner margin of the ring plate and disposed angularly apart, the dimensions of the notches being sufficient to 4 allow the ring plate to slip over the inboard rim bead flange of the wheel for installation and removal of said 6 plate between said flange and the tire.

3. The device according to claim 1 wherein the ring 2. plate comprises an integral radial extension of an inboard rim bead flange of the wheel, the extension covering an area

4. of an adjacent inboard side wall of the tire from the inboard tire bead and extending radially outward therefrom.

4. The device according to Claim 1 wherein the ring 2 plate is affixed to the side of the wheel by means of a plurality of mounting brackets affixed to the wheel, said 4 mounting brackets comprising a plurality of blocks circumferentially spaced on an underside of the rim 6 proximate a rim bead flange and affixed thereto, each block defining at least one threaded hole for engaging a bolt 8 extending through a corresponding hole defined by the ring plate along said ring plate's inner margin.

5. For a wheeled vehicle having conventional pneumatic 2 tires mounted on the rims of the wheels, a device for reducing lateral sheer deformation of a tire comprising a

4 ring plate affixed to the inboard side of the wheel and annular to the rim, the ring plate being adjacent to an inboard side wall of the tire and extending from a tire bead radially outward therefrom, the ring plate is affixed to the side of the wheel by means of a plurality of mounting brackets affixed to the wheel, said mounting brackets comprising a plurality of blocks circumferentially spaced on an underside of the rim proximate a rim bead flange and affixed thereto, each block defining at least one threaded hole for engaging a bolt extending through a corresponding hole defined by the ring plate along said ring plate's inner margin.

6. The device according to Claim 1 wherein an inner margin portion of the ring plate is lodged between a rim bead flange of the wheel and a tire bead, and securely held there by inflation of the tire.

7. The device according to claim 1 wherein the openings comprise slots.

8. The device according to claim 3 wherein the openings comprise slots.

9. The device according to claim 1 wherein the openings comprise notches.

10. The device according to claim 3 wherein the openings comprise notches.

11. The device according to claim 1 further comprising a radius formed by the outer margin of the ring plate.

12. The device according to claim 2 further comprising a radius formed by the outer margin of the ring plate.

13. The device according to claim 3 further comprising a radius formed by the outer margin of the ring plate.

14. The device according to claim 4 further comprising a radius formed by the outer margin of the ring plate.

15. The device according to claim 5 further comprising a radius formed by the outer margin of the ring plate.
