Tokyo Motorshow unveils the new Bridgestone Air Free Tyres
Bridgestone Air Free Tyres-A brand new concept. Has appeared at the Show, Thus, a brand new tyre that does not need any air the Airless Tyre . The new tyre is made of totally different materials.Especially, to the conventional tyres made of rubber compounds.
For this reason, they are made up of Thermo- plastic resins.Hence, this material is very flexible with great durability and is 100% recyclable.
The tyre (if we should call it that) will be free of punctures.Naturally, the run flat concept could be a thing of the past .
Although at this stage I am not sure. Therefore, to the extent that this product has been tested. My own theory. Is that it will be used for tripping around towns on little “green” energy saving cars. Michelin has also developed a similar concept tyres. Thus, called the Tweel as shown in the image.
Bridgestone tyres claim that the new resin that makes the tyres can be melted down and made into new tyres, therefore making the new product much less wasteful than the standard rubber tyres . Another great advantage is that the vehicle that has the tyres fitted will not have to carry a spare, the design means that the tyre can not be punctured,
another great feature by Bridgestone tyres.
Bridgestone tyres are a great innovative tyre company and I admire their attempts to make a better World. Eric Roberts.
I think that this new design fits well into the need for change that allows this product to fit into a greener and environmental friendly World, but I don’t think it will be the end all of all our problems produced by the rubber tyre, but it is a good start, it will also put people out of work in the service industry, but we will have a cleaner Planet.
