FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a tire showing our new design, it being understood that the pattern repeats uniformly throughout the circumference of the tread;

FIG. 2 is a front elevational view thereof;

FIG. 3 is a right side elevational view thereof; the other side being a mirror image thereof;

FIG. 4 is an enlarged fragmentary front elevational view thereof;

FIG. 5 is a perspective view of a second embodiment of a tire showing our new design, it being understood that the pattern repeats uniformly throughout the circumference of the tread and that the opposite side view is a mirror image thereof; and,

FIG. 6 is a front elevational view of a second embodiment, it being understood that an enlarged fragmentary view thereof would be substantially identical to that shown in FIG. 4, with the exception of the inclusion of the sidewall in solid lines.

In the drawings, the broken lines showing of the sidewall, inner bead and the peripheral boundary between the tire tread and the sidewall in FIGS. 1 through 4 depict environmental subject matter and form no part of the claimed design.
