Know the various types of tyres
By construction, there are two types of tyres - Bias and Radial tyres. The method of construction affects the durability, ride and also the fuel economy of the tyres. In India, the radial tyres are mostly used in cars whereas the bias tyres are still primarily employed in 2 wheeler tyres, 3 wheeler tyres and 4 wheeler tyres. In a preference type of construction, the tyres have belts called as plies that give a shape to it. They may be the layers of polyester, fibreglass or steel cords embedded in the rubber of a tyre. A bias type of tyre has a layered belt running at angles to each other to the body of the tyre.
Now, according to a radial type of construction, these car tyres have a belt at a 90-degree angle to the tyre, so that the straps overlap rather than crossing with each other. These tyres also have another belt which is made of steel cord and is continuously running around the tyre under the tread. This type of construction usually enables the sidewall of the tyres to flex under loads without affecting the contacts of the tread with the road.
