Dunlop started one day in 1888 when John Boyd Dunlop was watching his son ride his tricycle. Dunlop noticed how rough the ride was because the tires were treaded with metal. So Dunlop glued together the edges of two strips of rubber to make a tube, and then he inflated it with air from a soccer ball pump. Dunlop had invented the first pneumatic rubber tire, which offered a smoother ride than a solid rubber tire, and the modern tire as we know it was born.
With his new invention, Dunlop opened his first tire plant in Dublin in 1889. A tire factory opened in Birmingham, England two years later, and the Dunlop Rubber Company was born. Dunlop continued his work by inventing tires capable of accelerating over 200 miles per hour by 1920, which opened new doors for the company on the racetrack. The Dunlop Rubber Company also designed Dunlop Self-Supporting Technology (DSST) tires, created to support a vehicle’s entire weight even when the tire is punctured or completely flat.
