Kelly-Springfield Tire Company History
Edwin Kelly originally called the company the Rubber Tire Wheel Company because it made rubber carriage wheels. Arthur Grant was issued US 554675, a patent for his solid rubber tire in a rim channel. The tire was an instant success because the rubber stayed on the wheel and the compound was of good quality. Through the discovery of the pneumatic tire in the late 1880's the company was well on its way.
