What is the history of tire development?

Solid Rubber Tires for Power Wheelchairs.jpgIn 1895, with the advent of automobiles, pneumatic tires were widely developed. The first samples of automobile tires appeared in France in 1895. This is a single-tube tire made of plain canvas, which has a tread rubber and no pattern. It was not until 1908 to 1912 that the tires had a significant change, that is, the tread rubber had a pattern that improved the performance of the tires, thereby opening up the history of the tire tread pattern and increasing the section width of the tire, allowing lower adoption. Internal pressure to ensure better cushioning performance.

In 1892, Bury Mill in England invented the curtain and used it for production in 1910. This achievement improves the quality of the tires, expands the variety of tires, and also makes the tires moldable. As the quality requirements of the tires are improved, the quality of the fabric is also improved, and the cotton cord fabric is replaced by rayon. In the late 1950s, the rayon was replaced by nylon and polyester cords with better strength and higher heat resistance. Steel cords are highly competitive with the development of radial tires.

With the development of the automotive industry, tire technology has been continuously improved and improved. For example, from the early 1920s to the mid-1930s, car tires were transitioned from low-pressure tires to ultra-low-pressure tires; in the 1940s, tires gradually transitioned to wide rims; in the late 1940s, tubeless tires appeared; in the late 1950s, low-profile tires came out. Many new technologies have emerged as meridian structural tires pioneered by Michelin in France in 1948. This type of tire is known as a revolution in the tire industry due to its significant improvement in service life and performance, especially in running fuel.
