Amerityre passes safety standard
Amerityre Corp. says its full-size, non-pneumatic passenger tire has passed Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 129 testing.
Amerityre announced that non-pneumatic tires for compact and mid-sized vehicles had passed the same standard this past April.
"The tires are now eligible for use as spare tires on about 90% of all passenger cars produced each year," says Richard Steinke, Amerityre's President and CEO.
"We have successfully tested multiple designs of the temporary tires and we're currently working with a couple of automobile manufacturers to begin qualifying the tires as original equipment 'spare' tires."
Amerityre is exploring the possibility of manufacturing the tires or licensing other companies with manufacturing rights.
