Car tires (Chapter 6) i s one of the most important elements, which is an elastic shell located on the rim of the wheel. The tire is designed for absorbing minor oscillations that are caused by imperfections of the road surface, the implementation and perception of forces arising in the contact patch, and to ensure high traction properties. According to the type of construction, depending on the location of the cord (frame element), there are diagonal and radial tires.
In radial tires, the cord threads are located at the shortest distance between the tire sides. In diagonal tires they are located at some angle and intersect each other. Currently, only radial tires are installed on passenger cars. Diagonal tires are still used on motorcycles, mopeds, earthmoving and agricultural machinery.
