What is tubeless tyre?

1 Answers

Hello Vikas Yadav !!

Essentially, when it comes to tyres, there are of two types – Tube and Tubeless.
Unlike traditional pneumatic tires which use a separate inner tube, tubeless tires have continuous ribs molded integrally into the bead of the tire so that they are forced by the pressure of the air inside the tire to seal with the flanges of the metal rim of the wheel.
Let’s tell you in a bit more detail what to expect from these different options.
As the name suggests, a tube tyre consists of a tube of air that is placed inside the tyre. The air acts as a cushion and makes driving over bumpy roads a bit smoother. It also maintains the shape of the tyre and most importantly supports the weight of the vehicle, keeping it stable.
On the other hand, a tubeless tyre weighs less and reduces un-sprung weight of the vehicle. This gives you superior handling characteristics and inspires confidence in the driver. The overall result – a better driving experience!
However, the advantages of driving on a set of tubeless tyres is far better than tube tyre especially when a tyre gets punctured, with a sudden loss of air pressure, your car can get unstable and swerve, eventually leading to an accident. In similar condition, a tubeless tyre would lose its air slowly and uniformly, thus giving the driver ample time to slow the vehicle down and one another advantage is that they last longer than tube tyre.
