In 2013, Bridgestone developed airless tires for the passenger car market, attracting attention with its environmentally friendly and good driving performance. Airless tires are developing and continuing to be developed. It is estimated that the studies could take up to 10 years to complete. The future of the airless tire project looks bright.
Bridgestone airless tire technology has a rubber wire structure designed to support the weight of a vehicle, eliminating the need to inflate tires with air. Ribbon wires made of rubber allow to hold onto the road. In addition to reducing the accident rate, it provides balance by distributing the weight of the loads equally.
Currently, airless tires on the market are made of hard rubber or plastic. Golf carts, trailers and lawnmowers are some examples of these tires.
