“We have devoted a lot of time and effort these past few weeks trying to get to the point where we felt we could submit tires to the lab. However, we’re finally there and we are submitting tires as lab time becomes available,” said Richard Steinke, president and CEO of Amerityre.

Amerityre announced the development of its “air, no-air” tire system, also known as ARCUS, in November 2003. The ARCUS tire permits the car tire to operate with or without air. For more information on Amerityre, visit its website at www.amerityre.com.
