This product satisfies the basic performance of the tire and prevents puncture. In other words, it is a hybrid tire that combines a high-performance pneumatic tire with a non-pneumatic tire that does not produce a puncture, which applies a spoke to a pneumatic tire. This enables the user to run stably even when the tread is stabbed by foreign object, ensuring the same tire performance and safety. And tires that have been driven for a long time can be reused by replacing the tread to reduce cost and environmental pollution. For this reason, hybrid tires will be well suited as future technical tires for future self-driving cars.
