Buying the best quality tyres might bring your car with performance benefits but it does not change the fact that they are vulnerable to punctures. But what if your tyres could be puncture proof or in a simpler sense, they aren’t prone to puncture for a lifetime? Yes, that is something possible while speaking of Michelin’s Puncture-proof tyres which in close collaboration with General Motors (GM) is credited for launching an exclusive generation of Unique Puncture-Proof Tyre System or Uptis. Being one of its kind, with an airless mobility solution that guarantees against the risk of flat tyres or other forms of punctures lets quickly take a look at some of the specifications of Michelin’s Puncture-proof tyres:
Manufactured using High-tech Innovation and Technology
From its very name you can precisely understand that Michelin’s expertise and use of high-tech innovative technology is responsible behind its exclusive airless mobility feature. Built especially from three materials, particularly a rubber for tread, a unique resin embedded fibreglass for reinforcement and aluminium for wheel spokes, the Uptis prototype eliminates the necessity of pressure control making it ideally suitable for self-driven vehicles and passenger car fleets.
Based on a Tweel concept to prevent them from bursting, suffering leak pressure or becoming flat, Michelin tyres has additionally initiated an environmentally sustainable solution as it reduces energy in production and waste of tyres as a result of damage or puncture and also lessens the wear and tear by a considerable margin.
A valued Collaboration
With its significantly valued partnership with one of the major global OEMs i.e., General Motors, Michelin has contributed towards manufacturing a unique tyre collection to promote its breakthrough goal of making Uptis one of the world’s exclusive, outstanding and classic tyre brands, best suited for passenger vehicles as early by 2024.
Michelin’s competitor in the industry
Bridgestone Tyres Coventry might be a tough competition to Michelin. With its exponential collection of Driveguard Summer and Winter Tyres, the manufacturer also introduces run-flat technology. They allow you to keep driving for about 50 miles at 50 mph even after facing a puncture. ECOPIA EP150 and TURANZA T005 come with features like revolutionary Nano-Pro technology, controlling interaction between various compound elements, innovative choice of materials and technology to reduce tyre weight, a stiff steel polyester reinforcement ensuring superior handling and high-level lug grooves to provide resistance against hydroplaning are two exclusive eco-friendly tyres to give you a smooth driving experience.
Bridgestone tyres also offer you and your driver a safe and secured driving experience on the road, given its reduced risk of flat tyres and other air loss troublemakers encountered as a result of punctures and other road menaces. Also, the brand manufactures its tyres with environmental-friendly resources that ensures least use of raw materials.
Finally, Bridgestone’s path-breaking efforts to obtain a unique brand entitlement in worldwide tyre industry represents the brand’s struggle and advancement towards becoming the top-rated manufacturer in the world.
