Boulder City, Nevada--Amerityre Corp. has said it will begin production of spare tyres for passenger cars, light trucks and SUVs in January 2005. The tyres will be made from a foamed polyurethane.
A statement from Amerityre says safety experts are concerned that a conventional pressurised tyre represents a safety hazard when located next to a fuel tank, as the pressure can be released explosively, damaging the fuel tank.
