Like the Shoe that brings a high level of focus to how you find your way forward, the tire can represent how your motivation and life experiences are leading you forward. Inspecting tires on a car can symbolize making changes in a career, while a flat tire can suggest insecurities about your ability to succeed. You may not feel the inspiration or competence necessary to make the transition. The roundness of this symbol has associations with harmony and balance. Used as a symbol of motivation, it can also tie in the idea of being tired or unfulfilled. Tires separate us from feeling the effects of the road we travel, and can personify feeling disconnected from what you are doing or where you are going. If the tires are unusual in some way, explore whether there may be a message or clue about how you can feel successful and fulfilled by doing something different.
