--- The General Tire and Rubber Co. is an American manufacturer of tires for motor vehicles. General Tire was founded in 1915 in Akron, Ohio by William F. O'Neil. Products included the low-pressure "General Balloon Jumbo" and the "Dual 90" tire. General Tire reorganized its holdings into the holding company GenCorp in 1984, with General Tire and RKO General as subsidiaries. GenCorp sold General Tire to German tire maker Continental AG in 1987. General Tire still exists today as part of Continental's American operations.
