FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a tire showing my new design, it being understood that the tread design is repeated throughout the circumference of the tire and the opposite side is the same as that shown;

FIG. 2 is an enlarged fragmentary side elevational view thereof; and

FIG. 3 is a greatly enlarged fragmentary sectional view taken along the line 3--3 in FIG. 2;

The characteristic feature of my new design resides in the flame-like circular pattern on the sidewall of the tire.
