"Double rivet" is in fact the name of a tread pattern which first appeared with the first generation of automobile tires known as beaded edge tires. This tread pattern was retained for the first tires with bead wires in 1925. This tread pattern was truly revolutionary at the time, also served as the inspiration for the first radial tires.
