Why Tubeless Tires Are Becoming Much More Popular

Sep 10, 2008
We would have heard that the tube is the basic component of the tire which gets inflated and with stands the pressure of the vehicle. When we think of the accidents that are taking place, the main reason for that will be a burst in tire. Researchers have developed a tire that will not be punctured and busted. This type of tire does not have any tubes in it for inflation. One can ask the quest whether there will be no air loss in these types of tire. Yes. There will be loss in the air but it will be very slow and can withstand a drive of more than two hundred miles even after getting punctured.

The tubeless tires will have an inner lining made up of an impermeable membrane of halo butyl. The rim of the tire will act as a sealant for the air inside the tire. The air valve is directly kept on the rim. This technology will allow only the air to escape through this hole in case of a puncture. Thus the rate of decrease in air inside the tire is very much slow when compared with the ordinary tube tires. These tires have the ability to improve the durability of the tire and the performance of the vehicle in which it is fitted.

The advantages of the tubeless tires include less accident that occurs due to tire burst, easy maintenance, can be used in terrains and other rough roads. Low pressure tires can also be used to operate the vehicle without any discomfort or risk. This will improve the grip and control of the vehicle. The technology used in the tube less tire is simple. It is only the sealing of the tire either with the help of a rim or with a plastic strip. Use of more rubber will also help in sealing the air inside the tire.

The disadvantages of the tube less tires are as follows:

They are costlier when compared with the normal tires.
They worn out easily and should be replaced regularly.
A thread goes off easily and it should be replaced or else it will result in sudden damage to the vehicle and reduces the control of the vehicle.
They are heavier than the standard tires.

They don't often get air leaks which are good for tires and the puncture is not often caused like normal version. Though if it is caused it has the ability to with stand for certain distances which depends on the manufacturing quality.

There are positives and negatives but overall the advantages of tubeless outweigh the disadvantages when compared to conventional tires.
