An Overview of Tubeless Tyres

‘Tubeless Tyres’……. such a commonly thrown term, yet very few know what it means. You might be knowing a lot of people who have tubeless tires on their cars, in fact, you also be the owner of a car that has got tubeless tires yet, people are still clueless about them. We at Autobest feel that we must spread the word, once and for all, about what a tubeless tire stands for. Tubeless car tires affect a great deal on the way our car grips the road and handles. Tubeless tires are a huge blessing for us because car crashes have reduced considerably because of these tires. Imagine being stuck because of a flat tire, that can be a thing of the past if you choose to upgrade to tubeless tires.

To make things easier for you we will give you an example. Suppose you’re driving your car to someplace and suddenly you find that one of your tires has gone flat. After you’re done parking your car safely on the side of the road when you get out of your car, you find to get started with the tire replacement process. This is just an everyday thing on the Indian roads.  Now, you must be wondering why the tire got punctured. It’s because your tire consisted of a combination of tube and tire. The solution to this problem would be, car tubeless tyres. They are also known as puncture-resistant tires. Gone are the days when tubeless tires were only limited to high-end cars. Now, even motorcycles have tubeless tires on them.

 Before we go any further you must know what a wheel actually consists of.  It has three main components, first, the wheel, nothing but the steel or the alloy rim. There is also the tire, which encircles the wheel's circumference in a thick rubber. An air cushion separates the tire from the rim in a tubeless tire.

 THE WORKING OF A TUBELESS TIRE

When a tubeless gets pierced, the air inside it discharges at a really slow pace, so that the driver of the vehicle does not lose control over the car and he has the time to reach a place where he can get help. Whereas in the normal tire, the case would have been quite the opposite.

A tubeless tire’s price is around 2250 Rupees. The cost also depends on the model and the pattern type, so it is not necessary that the tubeless tire will be more expensive than the other one.

In case you’re still confused about tubeless tires, here are some advantages and disadvantages which might help you.

  ADVANTAGES OF TUBELESS TYRES

1. No tube: No tube means you don’t need to look for immediate assistance which is usually the case when you have the traditional tire on your vehicle, but thanks to tubeless ones, you have sufficient time to reach for help and get the tire replaced.

2. Low Pressure: In a normal tire, the pressure of the air varies and normal ones, due to this reason invite the tire to be punctured. But the tubeless can run at a speed of 30 to 50 kilometers per hour with a puncture.

3.More Safety: Just like we discussed before, the air release in tubeless tires is pretty low which gives the driver some time to reach help and prevents accidents as well on the highway.

4. Fuel-efficient as well as cost-saving: This factor is the selling pint of tubeless tires, we feel. As there is no tube, the tire is much lighter than the usual one which eventually results in less burning of fuel which means better mileage. It would also mean no tube cost as well as, maintenance.

5. Risk-free: If one drives at a relatively higher speed, friction between the tube and the tire is bound to happen, which can result in tire or tube explosion due to increased temperature. If you are one of those who are in need of speed, then you should definitely go for tubeless tires.

6. Better weight balance: Driving your car at a higher stable is safer with tubeless tires because the air is filled in the tire, rather than the tube which in simple terms means that there is no uneven pressure on the tire. The credit goes to the side rims of the tire that are reinforced to uphold the shape and that too for the long run.

 DISADVANTAGES OF TUBELESS TIRES
1. They are not easy to fit: Since a tubeless tire has to be fixed in an airtight manner against the alloy/rim to hold the air, it takes longer for a tubeless tire to fit. Another downside is that a tubeless tire requires a professional to fit in your vehicle otherwise, you might end up damaging the alloy rim.

2. Sidewall issue: A sidewall puncture can be really taxing because if it is damaged, it will require a swap. But a problem like this is a rare possibility, so nothing to worry about.

3. Costly: If you compare the two types, the tubeless one is more expensive. But this cost can be recovered from the fuel savings due to the light tires. Problem solved.

We put out all pros and cons for you, we can sum up by saying that there are more advantages than disadvantages which are really rare still, we thought there’s always a possibility. In case you want to buy new tires, blindly go for tubeless ones as they stand for better performance, reliability, safety and fuel efficiency.
