In this chapter a simple, yet significant, tire model is developed. It is basically a brush model, but with some noteworthy additions with respect to more common formulations. For instance, the model takes care of the transient phenomena that occur in the contact patch. A number of Figures show the pattern of the local actions within the contact patch.
