The problem of an inflated cylindrical tire of infinite length and constant finite width steadily rolling over the surface of an anisotropic elastic half space is examined. The influence of an applied force, acting along the axis of the cylinder, on the width of the region of slip at each end of the tire is determined. In particular, it is shown numerically that when a material exhibits certain anisotropy the presence of an axial force can considerably reduce the width of the zones of slip.
