For automatically feeding a rubbery strip to a tire-building drum for the production of, for example, a green tire, the rubbery strip is forwardly conveyed toward the tire-building drum until a leading end portion thereof is received on a smooth surface with one face of the leading end portion directed toward the tire-building drum so as to establish close contact between the other face of the leading end portion of the rubbery strip and the smooth surface portion throughout the width of the rubbery strip whereby the leading end portion of the rubbery strip is detachably retained to the smooth surface portion, whereupon the leading end portion of the rubbery strip is transferred from the surface portion to the tire-building drum for permitting the leading end portion of the strip to be wrapped round the tire-building drum and thereafter the leading end portion of the rubbery strip is cut from the remainder of the strip for forming a cut segment having a predetermined length, the tire-building drum being thereafter driven for rotation about the center axis thereof for causing the cut segment of the rubbery strip to be wrapped round the tire-building drum.
