How Car Tires Are Manufactured

🚗 Cars are complex machines, each part made in highly specialized and specific ways, car tires included. Here is how car tires are manufactured.

🚕 Car tires are the part of your vehicle that keeps you moving forward. But have you ever wondered about how car tires are manufactured? Read ahead for a quick overview of the process.

❋ Design and Plan 👇

Designing the item you plan to manufacture is the first part of any industrial process. Car tires have been around for a long time now, and the manufacturing process is becoming increasingly digital. The design is usually created through engineering software, and the dimensions and curvature are handled with precision. After that, the tire-making machines receive this digitized format.

❋ Select Materials  👇

Most tires consist largely of rubber, both natural and synthetic. Oils, pigments, antioxidants, and other materials mix with the rubber to create each part of the tire. Tires must be crafted from quality, durable materials, including chemical agents, metallic cables, and fabric reinforcers.

❋ Melt and Mold 👇

Heat and friction work together to produce the final rubber composite that will mold the other parts of the tire. Tires are not one singular piece of rubber—they contain tread rubber, sidewall rubber, fabric-coated plies, and bead wires, among other components. A factory worker or automated apparatus then uses a tire-building machine in the shape of a collapsible drum to glue and set the tires. Finally, the tires cure over time, and subsequent heating and steaming help them fully coalesce

❋ Distribute Widely 👇

Quality control is important with tires—after all, tires must handle transporting drivers for thousands of miles on the road. After rigorous testing, the manufacturer packs the tires and distributes them to various sellers. These include tire stores all across the United States, from Trenton, New Jersey to Anderson, Indiana.

🟥 Knowing how car tires are manufactured can help you better select the parts for your vehicle. Because all cars are different and have specific needs, you should consult with a tire expert before choosing your next set of wheels.

Feast your eyes on the all-new, all-electric GMC Hummer EV

GMC has a new all-electric version of its classic Hummer oversized SUV. This thing is a beast, as you might expect, with an advertised 350-mile range and a 3-second zero to 60 mph time. It’s a bit ridiculous to be honest, which is kind of what the Hummer has always been about so that makes sense.

Alongside a teaser, GMC released a number of press photos of the 1,000 HP bruiser, so take a look below. It definitely looks like a Hummer – which may or may not be your cup of tea.
