A sales rep feels trapped by his life. During a business trip that takes him through his hometown, his car has a puncture. Whilst replacing the wheel, the salesman loses control of the spare down a hill, and the childhood memory of an unstoppable tractor tyre is triggered.
The Tyre was made with the support of The Film Council, Film Four, the Yorkshire Media Production Agency and Yorkshire Arts
