    Obviously, the rod attached to the fender is holding the wheel up so that the tire cannot go completely flat.....Simple!!

      Cool shot with Pasadena's Rose Bowl in the background!

      As for what they are testing, my guess is that with the clearly under-inflated tyre and what looks to be a temperature sensor, a study of tyre temperature/pressure effects. In short, how low is too low?

      Cheers,

          No, the tire is only flat on the bottom...

                Note on back seems to read..."Clyde..... loss air pressure over spikes!"... Only a Firestone techy would bother to stick a hankerchief in his best suit pocket and put on his best saddle shoes for a photo op with a tire gauge!
