Tire / Tyre Industry in Japan

It is the headquarters and manufacturing base for four of the twelve largest tire companies, including the largest company of all, Bridgestone.

An Apology

Half the world uses the word "tire" whilst the other half uses "tyre". Unfortunately search engines don't realise that they mean the same. In order to be recognised by the search machines we have had to resort to the irritating strategy of duplicating the two words. Sorry!
