Looking into simulating a tyre for monitoring in tyre air pressure.

See no need to go into the tyre composite materials details. Can just go for an example synthetic rubber eg Styrene-butadieneStyrene-butadiene.

Does Fluent have any close material. Software materials database refer to solids and fluids.

Also, looking for away of constraining tyre matreial form displacement or allow to expand out to just eg 1 mm.

Any guidance please?

Material listed below does fit for tyre material usage. Just read about this on the internet.

A bit tricky because above material was listed in the fluid list of materials, but it is actually an elastic solid. Can be fluid as well, if you melt it.
