 “1888 – DUNLOP INVENTS THE FIRST PNEUMATIC TYRE

 John Boyd Dunlop invents the “pneumatic tyre”.

The history of the pneumatic tyre began one day in 1888 when Scotsman John Boyd Dunlop came up with the idea of wrapping a rubber tube inflated with air round the rims of the wheels on his son’s tricycle. And thus was the “light” rubber tyre born – an invention created for the purposes of a child’s play that was to revolutionize transport and lay the foundations of a major manufacturing company.

Since that time, Dunlop has continued to write some of the greatest pages in the history of the tyre. This is a look back at more then 120 years of innovation”
