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 opposite side elevational view being identical thereto;

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 identical thereto; 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 the claim.

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.

The dark stippled surface shading represents the recessed portion of the tread grooves having a depth as best shown in FIG. 2.


The ornamental design for a tire, as shown and described.
