COMPONENTS OF TYRE -
TREAD
Tread is a part of the tyre which comes in contact with the road and provides –
A ) traction-driving stability,steering stability, braking stability etc
B ) wear resistance- mileage
C ) resistance to cuts due to road conditions- durability
These are protective rubber coverings given on both lateral sides of the tyre .
these are designed to flex and bend without cracking with subject/to
ordinary/ continuous deflection or in the event of sudden shock.
BEADS
Beads are provided in tyres to anchor to the rim and  are considered to be
The foundation of the tyre   for  mounting on the rims
The beads are made up of copper coated steel wires assembled in the bundles
Of one or two in numbers depending upon the sizes of the tyre.
The carcass plies , which form the infrastructure of the tyre are tied around
These bead bundles.
CARCASS
This is the infrastructure of the tyre which provides strength to the tyre ,
which is denoted on the tyre in the form of ply rating./ load index
This carcass is made up of  polyester or nylon cords in case of radial
Type tyres.
These cords are calendered with resilient type of rubber compounds to
form plies.
Successive layers of such plies are assembled depending upon the ply rating/load index  of the tyre to form carcass/casing.
STEEL BELT
The firm foundation of steel – belts eliminates tread shuffle.
This is what gives  extra –mileage.,road stability
