INTEGRATED AIR-LESS AUXILIARY TIRE TO WHEEL ASSEMBLY

During the lifecycle of a tire, especially while driving a vehicle, any of the rubber tires of the vehicle can go flat by spikes and any other harmful components on the road or the tires can explode by driving at excessive speed. Normally, these unwanted situations mentioned before cannot be controlled and may happen at any time. As there is nothing but air between the rubber tire and the wheel rim of the vehicle, the integrity
of the wheel rim (made out of steel or aluminum) might get compromised when the rubber tire goes flat when the vehicle is turned off, or in the worst case, the integrity of the driver and external third parties might be in danger if the rubber tire explodes while driving at certain speed.

An integration of an airless tire to the wheels assembly is proposed to have a support between the flat tire and the wheel rim (7).

Design Description

The Integrated Air-Less Auxiliary Tire to Wheel Assembly proposal consists of three components, the rubber tire (1) which design is the same as the typical tires used in the automotive industry, an airless tire (2) which design is made out of an energy absorbing structure created with a geometrical circular array that may vary according to the given load requirements of the vehicle in order to guarantee an outstanding performance if any of the tires go flat and/or explode during driving. The airless tire (2) being used for the purposes of this disclosure...
