Tyres — a high tech product

Tires are one of most important components of a car. They influence safety on the road, comfort of driving, fuel consumption. Tire Technology engineers develop unique projects which reveal tire physics knowledge and specifics of tire behavior on different road types. Developing tires takes years of engineering. The primary investigations considered perfection of tire construction, combination of rubber mixture compounds with various polymer additives.

Major consideration is given to tire carcass and tread elements flexibility and hardness. Tire studs for winter tires are also constantly being improved. Thanks to advanced 3D modeling, the optimal stud shape and positioning are achieved. This influences the tyre ice grip and thus results in tyre lifetime improvement.

The following criteria are the basics of Tyre Technology engineers for the tyre development:
