The earliest tires were bands of leather,[6] then iron, (later steel), placed on wooden wheels, used on carts and wagons. The tire would be heated in a forge fire, placed over the wheel and quenched, causing the metal to contract and fit tightly on the wheel. A skilled worker, known as a wheelwright, carried out this work. The outer ring served to "tie" the wheel segments together for use, providing also a wear-resistant surface to the perimeter of the wheel. The word "tire" thus emerged as a variant spelling to refer to the metal bands used to tie wheels.[citation needed]
The first practical pneumatic tire was made by Scottish inventor John Boyd Dunlop while working as a veterinarian in May Street, Belfast in 1887 for his son's bicycle, in an effort to prevent the headaches his son had while riding on rough roads. Dunlop's patent application was filed from Oriel House, Westland Row in Dublin in 1893.
Dunlop's patent was later declared invalid because of prior art by fellow Scot Robert William Thomson, although Dunlop is credited with "realising rubber could withstand the wear and tear of being a tire while retaining its resilience".[7] The development of this technology hinged on myriad engineering advances. In terms of materials, the vulcanization of natural rubber is credited to Charles Goodyear and Robert William Thomson. Synthetic rubbers were invented in the laboratories of Bayer in the 1920s.[8] Today, over 1 billion tires are produced annually in over 400 tire factories, see List of tire companies.
Pneumatic tires are manufactured in about 450 tire factories around the world. Over one billion tires are manufactured annually, making the tire industry a major consumer of natural rubber. It is estimated that by 2015, 1.72 billion tires are expected to be sold globally.[9] Tire production starts with bulk raw materials such as rubber, carbon black, and chemicals and produces numerous specialized components that are assembled and cured. Many kinds of rubber are used, the most common being styrene-butadiene copolymer. This article describes the components assembled to make a tire, the various materials used, the manufacturing processes and machinery, and the overall business model.

Styrene-butadiene copolymer (chemical structure pictured) is the most popular material used in the production of rubber tires.[8]
In 2004, $80 billion of tires were sold worldwide,[10] in 2010 it was $140 billion[11] (approximately 34% growth adjusting for inflation).
The top five tire manufacturing companies by revenue are Bridgestone, Michelin, Goodyear, Continental, and Pirelli.[12]

5 of the Best Aftermarket Wheels You Can Buy for Your Car

One of the first things people do when they want to change things up on their car is buy a set of aftermarket wheels. It’s seems like a great idea, as this will drastically effect the way your car looks, and there are literally thousands of different wheel configurations for you to choose from. From period correct 14-inch replicas to gargantuan 32-inch chrome rollers, there really is something for everyone these days, and the only thing holding someone back how much they are willing to pay.

But before you go and buy the first set of wheels you find be sure to watch this video on why knock-off rims are so dangerous. In the wheel world, you typically get what you pay for, and when it comes to something that could potentially save (or take) your life, you want some strength and rigidity to go with the looks. You also have to take into consideration things like proper width, offset, bolt patterns/pitch circle diameter (PCD), caliper clearance, and load tolerances to name just a few. Most people don’t care though, and they just buy whatever looks best to them at the lowest possible price, not knowing that they are investing in something that could crack or bend at a moment’s notice.

So before we go any further, let’s talk about the two primary ways wheels are made: casting and forging. Casting is the process in which aluminum alloy is melted at high temperatures and is then poured into a mold to form a product. This is the easiest and cheapest way to mass produce wheels, and is how the majority of those knock-off and budget-oriented rims are formed. Besides being prone to bends and cracks, the casting process makes significant weight reduction almost impossible as it cannot be formed into a thin layer of metal. And while there are some very high-quality cast wheels out there, with unique strengthening steps, these reinforced versions typically cost a quite bit more than their simplistic counterparts.

Steel Wheels Buying Guide

When buying wheels for a vehicle, shoppers have a choice between steel and alloy. While alloy wheels are lighter, they can’t compete with the strength and durability of a steel wheel. Even though alloy wheels are the wheel type of choice for car manufacturers, car enthusiasts prefer steel wheels due to their reduced cost and strength.

Steel wheels are also heavier than alloy wheels, weighing three times as much. This makes them a good option for shoppers looking to save a little money when replacing their vehicle’s wheels. Their heavier weight lowers the center of gravity of the vehicle, however, which is not good for those who prefer a vehicle with agility and acceleration. On the plus side, this extra weight makes the vehicle more controllable in winter conditions, such as snow, ice, or freezing rain.

When searching for steel wheels, buyers should check out available steel wheel product options before making a final purchase. They should also learn about the different diameters and widths, how these differences relate to each other, and how to buy steel wheels.

Discover Steel Wheels
When shopping for steel wheels, shoppers should keep in mind wheel size, the finish that they desire, and their overall budget. The following sections detail wheel basics, including rim diameter, rim width, and what these two measurements mean in relation to each other. In addition to these areas, shoppers should learn how to differentiate the standard wheel size for their vehicle and the various types of finishes available for steel wheels.

Steel Wheel Basics
When dealing with steel wheels, there are some basic terms that affect what wheel a shopper buys. These include the overall size, the bolt pattern, the offset of the wheel, and the finish desired. The sections below provide shoppers with more information about these areas.

Rim Diameter
A steel wheel’s rim size is the diameter of the wheel where the bead of the tire sits on the wheel. The list below includes several common wheel diameters, which ranges from 13 to 20 inches:

13 inches
14 inches
15 inches
16 inches
17 inches
18 inches
20 inches
In all cases, buy steel wheels that conform to the load capacity of the vehicle they are mounted on, as determined in large part by the number of lugs, the pitch center of diameter (PCD), and the type of axle utilized. In general terms, the larger the vehicle, the bigger the load capacity requirements of the wheel. All wheels have the load capacity stamped into the back of the wheel.

Rim Width
Steel wheel rim width is the measurement from the inside of the outer rim flange to the inside of the inner rim flange. The list below details some of the various rim widths available, from 4 inches to 14 inches:

4 inches
4.5 inches
5 inches
5.5 inches
6 inches
6.5 inches
7 inches
7.5 inches
8 inches
9 inches
10 inches
12 inches
14 inches
When choosing a steel wheel to purchase, shoppers need to keep in mind that the vehicle they are buying for has a specific range of rim width that can be mounted and still retain a degree of safety while being driven. Buying a steel wheel with a width that is too small for the vehicle in question can lead to poor performance, or worse, wheel and tire failure.

Tire Diameter to Width Ratio
The ratio of the height of a tire in comparison to its width is called its aspect ratio. Increasing one will cause a proportional increase of the other. This is represented as a percentage. For example, when reading the tire code 225/70R14, the number after the slash represents 70 percent. What this means is that the height of the side wall is 70 percent of the nominal width of the tire. Width increases stability and handling, while a more narrow tire will increase speed and the overall ride comfort.

Using different-sized wheels over the standard that comes with a vehicle from the factory can represent its own set of problems. When doing so, shoppers should be careful not to buy a tire that is either too narrow or too wide for the rim it is placed upon. A common method for increasing the size of a wheel and still staying within safe parameters is to plus-size, step-up a tire. This involves decreasing the tire profile, some times as much 35 percent, which in turn allows shoppers to increase the overall rim size while keeping the tire within the parameters that allow the rolling radius to stay the same as a standard tire. Shoppers wanting to do so should consult a tire professional before proceeding.

Bolt Pattern
Bolt patterns are the holes in a rim for the bolts on the axle hub to fit through, allowing the wheel to be tightened to the axle through the use of lug nuts. They come in different numbers of bolts, which are stationed at an equal distance from each other in a circular pattern. The table below lists some common bolt patterns found on steel wheels. The first number represents the number of bolts, while the second number represents the diameter of the pattern in millimeters:

4x100 millimeters
5x100 millimeters
5x139.7 millimeters
6x139.7 millimeters
8x165.1 millimeters

Before purchasing a tire, shoppers should find out how many bolts their current wheels have and shop accordingly. When attaching tires, shoppers should use a star pattern when tightening, and make sure not to overtighten, as this makes it hard to remove the lug nuts when the tire must be removed at a later time.

The offset of a wheel is the relation of where the tire sits on the wheel in relation to the suspension. Measured in millimeters, it is the distance between the wheel hub, where the wheel attaches to the axle, and the centerline of the rim. A positive offset means the wheel is more toward the outside of the vehicle and toward the fender. A negative offset gives a wheel that is more in toward the suspension of the car.

Take care to not deviate outside the parameters allowed for the vehicle. Doing so can affect both how the car handles and also put too high of a load on bushings, ball joints, and bearings. Shoppers wishing to change the offset of their wheels should first consult with a tire professional before doing so.
