On This Day, May 11th - Page 2 of 3

On May 11, 1947, the B.F. Goodrich Company of Akron, Ohio,
announced it had developed a tubeless tire, a technological
innovation that would make automobiles safer and more

The culmination of more than three years of engineering,
Goodrich’s tubeless tire effectively eliminated the inner
tube, trapping the pressurized air within the tire walls
themselves. By reinforcing those walls, the company
claimed, they were able to combine the puncture-sealing
features of inner tubes with an improved ease of riding,
high resistance to bruising and superior retention of air

While Goodrich awaited approval from the U.S. Patent
Office, the tubeless tires underwent high-speed road 
testing, were put in service on a fleet of taxis and were 
used by Ohio state police cars and a number of privately 
owned passenger cars.
