BTW there is another tyre parallel in soccer boots beleive it or not!

I once met the guy who developed the Nike Predator soccer boot which has a special upper surface to help aim the ball precisley when kicked .It turned out that some of the contact patch stabilty problems in designing th Predator boot were a bit similar to the tyre patch distortion under load problms
