This paper deals on the static structural analysis of a P195/55 R16 85H radial tire developed from Natural Rubber/Tea seed oil (Camellia sinensis) modified kaolin composite using ANSYS Workbench 14.0 software. The kaolin modification was achieved by intercalation in the presence of hydrazine hydrate as co-intercalate. The tire model investigated was developed using CREO Elements/Pro E and the geometry imported into ANSYS Workbench 14.0.The material parameters characterizing the linear isotropic elastic behaviour of rubber vulcanizates were established. The study was developed on maximum inflation pressure of 32psi (≡0.2206 MPa) and maximum Force of 5150N from the load index obtained from the tire load index. The 3D FE model computations for static loading of the tire gave reasonably good prediction of the functionality of the tire material developed, as the von Mises stress value of 878810 Pa obtained on maximum inflation is higher than the applied maximum inflation pressure of 32psi (≡ 0.2206 MPa) and the von Mises stress value of 611330 Pa obtained on application of vertical load of 5150 N is higher than the specified pressure on vertical loading.
