The Original Rambler(Thomas B. Jeffery & Co.)

Also in September, Thomas B. Jeffery was awarded a patent for an automobile tire design. During the 1870s he had been awarded a patent for the clincher tire design, at that time intended for bicycle use. Rambler sold tires under the G&J brand, which stood for Gormully & Jeffery, the builders of the original Rambler bicycle, and also of the few Rambler car prototypes built up to 1900, as the bicycle operation had been sold in 1899. Phillip Gormully had been TBJ's constant companion in the bicycle business, having been a friend since their childhoods in England. Phillip J. Gormully passed away in 1899.

This patent takes the original bicycle design, improves and refines it still further for automobile use.
