Instead of the radial-ply tires that are the standard for modern automobiles, light aircraft tires are a bias-ply design, where the internal fabric cords are sandwiched between two layers of rubber and laid diagonally--at 30- and 60-degree angles to the tire's centerline--and extend from bead to bead.
On more even terrain, the radial design provides a quieter, smoother ride than a conventional bias-ply tire, treading over small and large bumps with ease.
