Bridgestone Displays Airless Tyres

Bridgestone is one of the largest tyre and rubber companies in the world.During the Tokyo Auto Show 2011,the Company displayed Bridgestone airless tyres. This tyre uses resin spokes formed on the lateral side of the tyre to support a load.From the center of the wheel,the spokes do not run from the inner rim to outer,tread in a radial pattern,each angle of the spoke on the inner circumference is around 45 degree different from the outer circumference. In this way, the force that deforms the tread does not turn into a turning force. If the Company is able to sell these at the commercial level,it will mean no flat tyres and air pumps
