Where Did The Name "Tyre" Derive From?


The word tyre or tire originated from 'attire' as the product was seen as clothing for the wheel. Commonly spelt as ‘tire’ in America, in New Zealand we typically use tyre which wasn’t around until the 19th century. ‘Tyre’ over the course of the 20th century became established as standard British spelling.
