In an air-filled or pneumatic tyre, the air is held in by a valve (katirere). Air under pressure (compressed air) can support a lot of weight. At the same time, it can absorb impact by compressing further when, for example, a tyre hits a bump in the road.
Bubbles are another example of the push of air. When we blow a bubble, we push air into a film of bubble mixture or a layer of bubble gum.
