Re: What\'s the difference between radial & bias tires?

Lets see now I will try to splane this with no pictures!!!!! A radial tire is built with all the plys of rubber running in the same direction with a band of either Nylon, Polyester, or Steel cording running around the radius of the tread surface. This gives the tire a stiff tread area and a very pliable side wall. The Bias ply tire is made with the plys layered with the bias (cut rubber sheeting with some type of cording imbeded on a 45 degree)reversed every other layer. this makes the side wall a little stiffer as well as the tread area. The ply rating on a tire implies the number of sheets (plys) of rubber that was used to make up the tire whether that be radial or bias. If you have trouble with the word bias ask your wife what it means, if she sews she will know and can explain.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
