  1. Not a question on your podcast, but one I heard from a leading US publication with their long-serving technical editor. Talking about choosing the proper tire pressure, he introduced the concept of hoop stress. Though the discussion was confusing, what I got out of it is that hoop stress is greater than the force from the pressurized air in the tire and so should be taken into account when looking at the behavior of the tire. As I understood it, he said that the effective pressure in the tire is not the gauge pressure, but the hoop stress in the casing. I can understand why hoop stress needs to be considered when designing the casing to make sure it is strong enough and won’t split, but I don’t see how it would affect the spring rate of the tire. Could someone explain? Thank you.
