Four papers are presented here on: longitudinal force on bias and radial tires; the inflated tire profile; temperature rise in pneumatic tires; and radial deformation of belted tires. In the first study, tests were carried out to compare the effect of longitudinal force on the lateral force and aligning moment produced by a bias and radial tire for different slip angles. In the second study which studied the inflation and axial compression of a composite, initially cylindrical membrane, the analysis for the inflation of bias tires, based on the model of the net inextensible cords, is reformulated in terms of bead point coordinates and the cross angle of cords in the initially cylindrical membrane. In the third paper, an idealized model is proposed for heating of a pneumatic tire. The fourth paper on the computation of radial deformation characteristics of belted tires is based on the idea that the air pressure in the tire is the preponderant component of elasticity.
