Weight Of Tires

A tire is a round, ring-shaped rubber covering component or cushion that surrounds a wheel’s rim with an inflated(filled with compressed gas or air) inner tube. Mainly used to load from a vehicle’s axle via wheel to the ground and provide propper traction to the surface on which wheels travel.

The design of a tire varies depending on the product type and manufacturers, on average a tire contains more than one hundred separate components which include natural rubber, steel, synthetic rubber, nylon, silica, polyester, petroleum, carbon black etc and more.

These components are combined and processed differently by the manufacturers which ultimately makes different performance characteristics for each tire. The very first air-filled tire was invented by a 23-year-old Scottish engineer Robert William Thomson in 1845.

It was actually a vulcanized rubber pneumatic (inflatable) tire. That tire was called “leather filled with air”.
