General information on earthmover tires
The tubeless radial tire: remarkable properties
Portrait gallery
Composition
The tubeless radial tire is mounted with no inner tube, with a special rim equipped with an appropriate valve.
From the outside, this tire looks the same as a tube-type tire, and its radial construction is identical.
A layer of special rubber (butyl) is incorporated inside the tire to make it airtight.
Numerous advantages
• Reduced chance of sudden deflations: slow deflation gives the driver time to get to the maintenance workshop for repair
• Easier to mount (no inner tube)
• Lighter weight rim + tire assembly
