    Tyres (Tire and Rubber) - one of the most important elements of the wheel, which is a rubber elastic metal fabric shell mounted on a rim.

    Dunlop Tyres

    Bus provides the contact of the vehicle with the road, designed to absorb minor fluctuations caused by imperfections in the road surface, the trajectories of the error compensation of the wheels, the realization and perception of forces generated in the contact area.

    The world's first rubber tire was made by Robert William Thomson, but there was no one who would have started with this idea and brought it to mass production with reasonable cost. In 1888 the idea of ​​a pneumatic tire has arisen again. The new Scottish inventor John Dunlop was a commercial development of inventions began with the formation of a small company in Dublin and the end of 1889.

    The design of the tires.

    Continental Tyres

    The main materials for the production of tires are rubber, which is made from natural and synthetic rubbers, and cord. Cord tissue can be made of metal thread (metal), plastic and textile fibers. Bus consists of: frame, belt layers, tread, side and side. Textile and Polymer Cord used in passenger and light truck tires, metal - in the truck.

    Depending on the orientation of the cords in the tire carcass are distinguished:

    - Radial
    - Diagonal

    In a radial tire cords are located along the radius of the wheel. In the diagonal tire cords arranged at an angle to the radius of the wheel, crossed filaments of adjacent layers.

    Yokohama Tires

    Radial tires are structurally more rigid, thus have a great resource, have a stable form of the contact patch, create less rolling resistance, less fuel consumption. Because of the possibility to vary the number of layers of the framework (as opposed to necessarily an even number in the diagonal) and the possibility of reducing the layer, decreasing the total weight of the tire, the thickness of the frame.

    This reduces the heating of the tires rolling - increasing service life. Brecker and tread as easily release heat - may increase the thickness of the tread and depth of its figure to improve off-road terrain. Therefore, at present, radial tires for passenger cars is almost completely replaced the diagonal.

    Nokian Tyres

    Brecker is located between the carcass and tread. Designed to protect the carcass from impact, stiffening of the tire contact patch the tire and to protect the tires and driving on the cutting chamber of mechanical damage. Made of a thick layer of rubber (tires in the lungs) or crossed layers of polymeric cords and (or) of steel.

    The tread is needed to ensure an acceptable coefficient of friction of tires on the road, as well as to protect the frame from damage. The tread has a certain pattern, which, depending on the destination bus is different. All-terrain tires have deeper tread and lugs on its sides.

    Drawing and design of the tire tread is determined by the requirements of the road to the abstraction of water and dirt from the grooves and the desire to reduce the noise of rolling. But still, the main task of the tire tread - to ensure good contact with the road wheels in adverse conditions such as rain, mud, snow, etc., by removing them from the contact patch designed for the exact grooves and grooves pattern.

    Kumho Tires

    Board allows the lid tightly to sit on the rim. For this he has on-board inside the ring and covered with a layer of viscous air-tight (for tubeless tires) rubber. Side protects the tire from side damage.

    Stud. In order to improve the safety of driving in ice and snow, icy metal used Stud. Riding on studded tires has a notable feature. In the course of the car is much more noisy, it gets worse fuel economy.

    In snowy or muddy mess in the deep loose snow performance spikes is small, and the solid dry or wet asphalt tires lose even ordinary. Tubeless tires are most common due to its reliability, less weight and ease of use (for example, a puncture in a tubeless tire will not cause great inconvenience to the road to the service center).
