This issue is dedicated to coverage of a number of papers from a mini-symposium on “Advances in Computational Tire Mechanics.” This symposium was organized as a part of the 7th World Congress on Computational Mechanics held at Los Angeles, California, 16–22 July 2006. The organizers of the symposium gratefully thank the Tire Society for the opportunity to publish these papers. The Tire Society in turn is thankful for the contributions made to the literature in tire mechanics. Special thanks go to the organizers, Jin-Rae Cho (Busan, Korea), Michael Kaliske (Dresden, Germany), and Mike Poldneff (Akron, Ohio, USA). We hope to offer similar cooperative contributions to our readership in the future.
