The sign accompanying the tire. It reads
This tire was flown aboard the Columbia Space Transportation
System-58 shuttle mission. The tire, manufactured by
B.F. Goodrich, weighs about 400 pounds and is designed for up to six
landings. The tires take a beating during the landing process. When the tires
touch down, they go from 0 to 225 miles per hour in less than a second. The
tires also bear the full weight of the 227,400-pound shuttle when it lands.
STS-58 landed at Edwards Air Force Base in California on November 1, 1993.
From the time the tires hit the runway until the shuttle came to a complete
stop, it traveled 9,640 feet, or 1.85 miles.
