One of the most well-known companies in this business is Goodyear, the company has even become one of the leaders in the development of tire technology.
Goodyear basically has different types of tires with different functions. However, there is one type of tire that is currently quite popular, namely the airless tire where the tire does not require air pressure and has a hollow design.
The idea of airless tires or airless tires is actually quite common, even most of the big brands like Michelin and Bridgestone are also creating airless tires with mixed results.
The race to bring airless tires among tire manufacturers seems to be heating up. The reason, Goodyear just shared a video where they say that their airless tires are ready and suitable for Tesla.
The main benefits of airless tires are not always for performance reasons, but rather for increased life and lower maintenance costs. As in our previous article, particulate emissions from EV tires are 1,850 times greater than exhaust emissions from ICE cars.
This is mainly due to the heavier average weight of EV vehicles. Therefore, airless tires are believed to help reduce the car’s overall carbon footprint. In addition, the use of these tires will also drastically reduce maintenance and repair costs.
