Concept: a new non-pneumatic tire
Automobile tire whose structure have not changed for about 120 years. Now that the mobility society such as EV (electric car) and automatic driving technology is entering a new era, the structure of automobile tires that needs air supporting also needs to evolve.
The paradigm shift of the mobility society such as self-refueling at gas stations, home charging of EVs, dissemination of car sharing, is expected to reduce maintenance opportunities for automobile tires.
Therefore, TOYO TIRES has been working on research and development of airless tires for “pursuit of maintenance-free” and “realization of spare-less solution” since 2006.
And in September 2017, prior to the industry, we announced the technology of a new tire “noair” which does not require air that reached a level where high-speed driving with passenger cars is possible.
