Cambertire illustration

Cambertire technology is able to be applied to every day applications as well as sport and track use. Vehicles equipped with more camber from the factory often experience inner tire wear. Using a Cambertire on vehicles like this will increase tire life as well as handling.

On the track, Cambertire technology really shows it brute. Using a 3 or 4 degree tire allows for the suspension to have an aggressive camber stance which is normally done for cornering and handling stability, however, tires without camber built in lose much of their contact patch with this procedure. The Cambertire corrects for this! Racers can camber amounts safely up to 5 degrees without sacrificing tire life, the benefits on the track are nearly endless!

Our innovation didn't stop with just adding camber, we looked deeper into cornering and discovered that tire "roll" also caused a loss of handling ability. To compensate for this, we added in what we call a "rocker" on both the inner and outer corners of the tire tread pattern. As a tire "rolls" side to side from cornering g-forces, the shelf offers extra contact on the rolling edge resulting in skid pad results exceeding 1G on a street legal tire!

Such incredible claims can be difficult to believe, we encourage our guests to visit our "In the media" page to see what professionals around the world think of our tires through road tests! You'll never look at tires the same again.

OVERVIEW

The Cambertire is a revolutionary technology that changes the paradigm of conventional radial tires. Compared to conventional tires, Cambertire technology offers better wet and dry handling, better on-center feel and improved safety during emergency maneuvers. Cambertire technology improves tire wear and reduces rolling resistance improving fuel economy. Another benefit of Cambertire technology is the ability to prevent vehicle rollover, a very important design characteristic for SUVs and mini vans. It is a known fact that reducing un-sprung weight always improves handling and allows suspension systems to operate with improved efficiency. Reducing required tire weight, width, wind profile, and rolling resistance can contribute to increased acceleration and lessen the load on braking systems (reduced throw weight on spin-up and deceleration). Trailer tires are another significant future market for both the Cambertire and tread “rocker” technologies for safety as well as economical reasons. Economical that is for both the truckers who benefit mileage and the taxpayers because Cambertires spread the load more evenly which makes the roads last longer!

Intellectual Property

Currently Cambertire has three pending utility patents that complement the existing Cambertire U.S. Utility Patent 5,975,176, as well as stand-alone. The three pending utility patents include "Methods and Processes for Manufacturing Asymmetrical Tires", "Active Morphing Variable Tread Depth", and "Tire having a Sidewall Extension for Corning Support" aka "tread rockers."

Tire having a constantly decreasing diameter

Abstract

A tire having a decreasing profile diameter includes an outside sidewall with a greater height than the inside sidewall. The inner diameters of each sidewall are preferably identical. The outer diameter of the outside sidewall is greater than the outer diameter of the inside sidewall. The cross-section of the width of the tread has a substantially constant thickness from the inside tread diameter to the tread surface of the tire. The depth of the tread is preferably constant across the width of the tread surface.
