VEHICLE TYRES( manufacture B29 ) ; TYRE INFLATION ; TYRE CHANGING OR REPAIRING ; REPAIRING, OR CONNECTING VALVES TO, INFLATABLE ELASTIC BODIES IN GENERAL ; DEVICES OR ARRANGEMENTS RELATED TO TYRES( testing of tyres G01M 17/02 )
NOTE
-
In this subclass, the term "tyre" is to be understood as a separate ground-engaging, continuous element outside the periphery of the wheel rim and includes the tyre casing, cover, or jacket and any insert, e.g. inner tube. In the groups relating to repair or connection of valves, the term "tyre" is to be understood to include also inflatable elastic bodies other than tyres or inner tubes

Attention is drawn to the note following the title of class B 60.

WARNING
-
The following IPC groups are not used in the CPC scheme. Subject matter covered by these groups is classified in the following CPC groups:
