Straight Sided were the forerunner of wired on tyres and contrary to popular belief were invented as early as the beaded edge tyre. They have inextensible wire beads and employed either rims with detachable flange or rims that could be reduced in diameter for fitting and removal. Principally developed in the USA, where they preferred to beaded edge.
