GENEVA, Switzerland - Goodyear is displaying its Triple Tube self-adjusting concept tyre at the 2015 Geneva International Motor Show.

It was developed by the company's innovation centre in Luxembourg to inflate/deflate based on road conditions  and driving style for optimum performance and versatility.

Goodyear says the tyres could be used by autonomous cars to prepare their shape before, for instance, entering a curve in the road, thought the tyremaker has made plain there are no current plans to market the Triple Tube.
