One of the most basic pieces of the modern vehicle, tires are something that most people use on a regular basis, and have become so omnipresent that they rarely elicit any consideration, except perhaps when one goes flat. But the history of the tire goes back thousands of years, and has played an out-sized role in the story of human civilization. The History Guy recalls the forgotten history of tires.
