The analysis for the inflation of bias tires, based on the model of the net of inextensible cords, is reformulated in terms of bead point coordinates and the cross angle of cords in the initially cylindrical membrane. A simple numerical method of solution is described. An exact solution in a special case is given. Computations are presented for maximum cord tension, maximum cord‐rubber shear stress, and bead tension.
