Tyre factory. Strengthened tyre rubber being fed into a tyre building machine at a factory that makes vehicle tyres. All of the separate components of each tyre are assembled in the tyre-building machine. This machine ensures that all of the components are in the correct location and then forms the tyre into a shape and size fairly close to its finished dimensions. At this point the tyre has all of its pieces, but it's not held together very tightly, and it doesn't have any markings or tread patterns. This is called a green tyre. Photographed at Michelin Tyre PLC, Dundee, Scotland, UK.
