Brief nerdy history of how car tyres were made
Today’s automobile tyres gone a long way of development before them reaching their final form, which we use on a daily basis now. The first ones were used back in the days for carts and wagons, while they were made from leather and steel placed over a wooden wheel.
While this was a great innovation, the tyres weren’t as useful back then for a couple of reason.
One, they were breaking and second, well they were causing headaches for many people. Because of the bumpy roads, it was a quiet unease to use those tyres for long trips.
Today’s tyres were influenced by many people but the radial tyres we are using are mainly influenced by the company Michelin. Made by natural and synthesis rubber, fabric, wire, carbon black and other chemicals all mixed, they assure our comfort and safeness.
