How Racing Improves Road Tires

Listen To This Article

We drive thousands of miles a year with our cars, but it's very rare that we think about just how much our tires are doing for us. They are in constant contact with the road and never get much of a break from facing the harsh road conditions. Through many years of innovation and design improvements, the tires we use on our cars today are able to stand up to just about anything and always gets us where we need to go. However, it is thanks to the dedication and passion of a select few racing teams and tire manufacturers that our tires are the way we know them today.

Staying Green

Even just thinking about the staggering number of tires that must be on every car on the road is mind-bending and the environmental impact also seems to be unfortunate. However, many tire manufacturers are actually doing their part to make sure production remains clean and they are not producing excessive waste to make their tires. One such company that is dedicated to staying green is Giti Tires. Giti has been making tires since the mid-1900s and has been providing tires to world-class racing teams and everyday drivers alike. Although tire production itself isn’t an easy process to make green, companies like Giti does their part to try and help in other ways. Giti has been able to make their factories and operations greener by reducing emissions and scrap while also being able to increase their recycling to stay green. The manufacturer has also used their racing help spread awareness of their green message in hopes that other tire manufacturers will join them in creating a greener industry.

Automotive Technology News: How Racing Improves Road Tires

Tires of the Past

Before the invention of cars, the first-ever wheels, and tires were created for basic labor tasks until the first cars came along and the first car tires were created. Early tires were more solid than they were rubber and were often not suited for the bumpy roads of the 19th century. Just as tires needed a complete overhaul, the introduction of faster and more powerful racing cars essentially created an immediate need for stronger and more durable tires. John Dunlop created the first pneumatic tire that we associate with old racing cars that allowed the vehicles to ensure more intense conditions as a result of the newfound durability. When the clear success of the first tries was seen, many streetcars began to change their frame design and build to use these new wheels that did not need to be large and fragile like the horse carriage style wheels of the first cars. Tires began to get new types of materials and treads as the cars needed them and the racing world has been adapting and improving upon the original design ever since.

Automotive Technology News: How Racing Improves Road Tires

Racing inspired Improvements

For the early days of racing, not much differentiated the racing tires and normal street tires that you would have seen on normal road cars. Until the invention of the racing clicks, there was little real difference between road and race tires with not much of a difference in appearance or performance being noticeable. When the racing slick was introduced, it changed everything about racing. Racing slicks are designed to make as much ground contact as possible which is why you will see modern racing cars with tires that are just rubber. Race cars don’t need grooved tires because they just need a short-term tire that is able to help them stick to the ground and go fast. However, many racing companies designed special compounds and tire designs for the rain and uneven terrain that made its way into the normal car industry. New synthetic compounds that helped get rid of heat on racing tires slowly made its way into the mainstream tire market and has helped normal cars see better performance with their tires. Racing companies have found many unintentional solutions to older tire designs through race testing that has helped lead to better and more effective street tires.

Automotive Technology News: How Racing Improves Road Tires

Racing the road

Tires may just seem like a fairly boring part of racing and driving in general but without efficient and stable tires, your car or a race car could be sent off the road at dangerous speeds. As the car industry shifts towards producing more SUVs and larger vehicles, the tires they use also have to grow to adapt to the demands of a larger and heavier vehicle. Thanks to technology that has been primarily brought to life through racing developments, new tires are able to exist thanks to innovations and designs that have been created to help make race cars go faster. One of the biggest goals of any team is to make sure their car is light. Race cars will often be little more than an engine and wheel to that they can achieve higher speeds than their rivals. One area that some engineers looked into trimming weight was the tires. While just getting rid of material would mean more pit stops and a slower car, some creative folks decided to use stronger and more durable materials instead of just making tires bigger and heavier. What this did was make the tires have less weight and also meant they could be made out of more efficient materials. The practical application of this with road cars is that large SUVs and vans that would have once needed excessive rubber to move can now be moved with more efficient and lightweight tires. The tires used by race engineers to try and make their cars go faster has unknowingly created the basic tire structure we have on most road cars today and has helped lead to developments like run-flat tires and other compounds that increase the overall durability of our tires.

Conclusion

From the first race to the most recent, tires have come a long way and the worlds racing cars have been pushing them ever since. Through innovation and determination, racing companies and engineers have pushed their cars and tires to the limits to bring us the technically advanced tires we have today.

The Apple MagSafe Battery Pack costs $99 and works with the iPhone 12, 12 Mini, 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max.

But if you are willing to part with some of Apple's built-in niceties, there are third-party batteries that are a better value.

FTC Video: Avoid COVID-19 Stimulus Payment Scams | Federal Trade Commission


Related Videos On: Avoid COVID-19 Stimulus Payment Scams | Federal Trade Commission


Scammers are following the headlines about economic impact payments. Know how to spot and avoid the scams to keep your money and information to yourself. Learn more at https://ftc.gov/coronavirus. ********************************** Transcript: Hi, I’m Becca Kelly Slaughter, Acting Chair of the Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency. You’ve probably heard the great news that the American Rescue Plan is now law. That means lots of people will soon be getting desperately-needed economic impact payments—some folks call them stimulus payments—of up to fourteen hundred dollars. Many of you have been here before, so you know these funds will come through direct deposit, check, or debit card. But we here at the FTC would like to remind you that scammers follow the headlines, too. So here are a few sure ways to spot a scammer trying to take your money or personal information. First, know that nobody in the government will ask you to pay anything up front to get your economic impact payment. There’s no way to get your payment faster, and there’s no form to fill out. That’s simply a scam. Second, the government will not call, email, text, or message you on social media to ask for your Social Security, bank account, or credit card number. Anyone who does is a scammer. Third, anyone who tells you to pay by money transfer, gift card, or cryptocurrency is a scammer. No matter WHY they say you need to pay. If you spot these scams, tell the FTC at ReportFraud.ftc.gov. Every report helps us try to stop scammers. And let me say a word to would-be scammers: the FTC will use all of its enforcement authority to come after bad actors who try to take advantage of people anxiously awaiting relief. To learn more about avoiding pandemic-related scams, visit FTC.gov/coronavirus. And help us spread the word. Share these tips and this video through your network. Thanks for helping us protect people from scams. ********************************** The Federal Trade Commission deals with issues that touch the economic life of every American. It is the only federal agency with both consumer protection and competition jurisdiction in broad sectors of the economy. The FTC pursues vigorous and effective law enforcement; advances consumers' interests by sharing its expertise with federal and state legislatures and U.S. and international government agencies; develops policy and research tools through hearings, workshops, and conferences; and creates practical and plain-language educational programs for consumers and businesses in a global marketplace with constantly changing technologies.
