Truck tyre’s anatomy
The tyres of the truck are one of the most heavily used tyres on the market. Those tyres usually carry a tremendous amount of load on them and in order for them to be that though they need to be engineered and designed very carefully, so they can not only keep the load on them but as well keep the passengers on the road driving safely.
Parts of tyre
Tread is the first part of the tyre and that is actually what we see mostly and what is standing on the road itself. It must be made from tough rubber in order to sustain the pressure on it and the hard road, as well keep the truck safe on any dirt roads or potholes.
Undertread is what stands next and it is made in a way to support the connection between the tread and the inner side of the tyre. Basically, it is keeping everything together while cooling the tire when it is being driven.
To protect and keep everything together the next part is the Belts. Made from a mixture of rubber and steel cords this part initial job is to keep all the layers together.
The sidewall is the next part and that part is there to protect the inner parts from damage when driving. It is made of flexible materials that are fracture resistant.
The bead is what keeps the rim and the tire together. That part consists of a thin layer of steel, rubber, and wire. It also provides fundamental support to the tyre in order to keep it in shape.
The carcass is the layer in the tyre that helps the air inside to be compressed properly and sustain the shape of it. This part also regulates the amount of pressure and load that the tyres are overall ability to sustain.
The inner liner is made to hold the tyre’s air. It is the most fragile part that’s why it has all those other layers supporting and protecting it. It is specifically made for strength and durability to keep the long life of the tyre and safe ride of the driver.
