Most drivers have had this experience

It’s still common to see a car driving with a flat tire or to see someone on the side of the road changing a tire.

Some still have to bear the cost of replacing a worn out tire prematurely, perhaps because they forgot to check their air pressure regularly as they should.

Sometimes it’s not hard to realize that tires are the weak link in a car, but is that about to change?

Is it the end of the airy black rubber cake that was first used in vehicles in the 1890s and produced to be indestructible, and therefore not easy to recycle?
