Smart Tire / Materials and material applica

Smart Tire
Smart Tire

We can tell how old the tire is from the degree of abrasion, and the tire’s steadiness is related to the vein of tire. Every company designs different type of vein for different roadway, but we just can use naked eye to estimate the abrasion. If there is a softer rubber injected in the interstices of vein without effecting on the vein. Smart tire shows different icon in each layer. After wearing down, we can distinguish the degree of abrasion just by checking the icon. This design, smart tire, can tell when we need a new tire just by our eyes!Inject a softer rubber in the interstices of vein without influencing tire’s foundation.
