AKRON, Ohio - Barack Obama will be riding on a little bit of Akron-based technology after he takes the oath of office for president today.

The president's official customized Cadillac DTS limousine will be riding on a set of specialized Goodyear tires.

They're Goodyear Regional RHS tires, size 285/70R19.5. The products are actually truck tires designed to handle the limousine's extra weight.

All four rims contain a run-flat device that allows the car to be driven with zero air pressure.

Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. says that for decades it has been the exclusive supplier of tires for U.S. presidential limousines.
