    Abstract: The pneumatic tire of the present technology includes: a tread portion; sidewall portions; and bead portions. A pattern of grooves is formed on the tread portion, and a strip-shaped sound-absorbing member is bonded along the tire circumferential direction to a region of the tire inner surface corresponding to the tread portion via an adhesive layer. A first ground contact region is defined between the tire ground contact edge on one side in the tire width direction and the tire equatorial plane, and a second ground contact region is defined between the tire ground contact edge on the other side in the tire width direction and the tire equatorial plane. The sound-absorbing member is offset with respect to the tire width direction so that the centroid of a cross-section of the sound-absorbing member in a plane that includes a tire axis is located within the first ground contact region.
