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 of the area circled in FIG. 1;

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 interior of the tire forms no part of the claim, 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 immediately adjacent to the outer edges of the tire shoulder represent boundaries of the claim, and the broken lines depict environmental subject matter only and form no part of the claimed design.
