6 Remarkable Concept Car Tyres by Goodyear
Goodyear has worked for years and came up with its revolutionary concept about the future tyres and these concept will help to improve the car tyres and it will boost and improve the performance of the current tyres in the market. Yet, Goodyear just give the concept of these tyres and they have no plan to launch the production tyres sooner or later.
Indeed, these concept tyres are a revolution in car tyres and if the Goodyear give the reality to its concept tyres and started the production of these tyres then no doubt it will be a revolution in the history of tyres and vehicles. These types of tyres will not only improve the performance of the vehicles, but it will also ensure the safety of the passengers. These concept tyres will also be very helpful to reduce the pollution and to secure the environment. Here is the review of 6 concept tyres introduced by Goodyear tyres that are simply amazing.
Goodyear Eagle 360 Urban Car Tyres: A Concept Tyre Powered by Artificial Intelligence
Bets car tyres Goodyear give a concept of Eagle 360 urban, it is a concept tyre that is powered by an artificial intelligence. Goodyear wants to bring a revolution in tyres and in vehicles that is why they give a concept of Eagle 360 Urban. These tyres are designed to sense, decide, transform and to interact with the road.
Goodyear gives a concept to give a brain to the tyres and these tyres will have bionic skin that will be similar to human’s skin and the tread of the tyre will be morphing. These tyres will have the ability to put the knowledge into practice. Goodyear claimed that these tyres will become the part of vehicles Nervous System.
The Eagle 360 urban tyres will equipped with a sensor network that will allows the tyre to automatically check the status and to gather the information from the surrounding environment and after gathering the information the tyre will decide its reaction. The outer layer of the tyre will be of covered by a foam like material.
The eagle 360 urban tyres will automatically change according to the weather and road condition. The tyres are also fitted with another latest technology and by this technology the tyre will automatically locate the puncture side of the tyre. The tyre will automatically rotate that patch with another patch and it will heal the puncture tyre automatically. The shape of these tyres is spherical and they are inspired by the nature.

Intelligrip – Advanced Sensor Technology for Early Generation Autonomous Vehicles
By the in mind the cars and tyres the Goodyear gives a concept of Intelligrip, it is an advanced sensor technology for early generation autonomous vehicles. These tyres are deigned to sense the road conditions that includes the weather condition and the road condition and the tyre will also communicate with Central Computer System that will help to improve the performance of the tyres and this system ensures the safety of riders.
The tyres will automatically detects the rainy and slippery reduce and will reduce the speed and these tyres will provides an improved optimize stability, cornering response and it will also support Collision Prevention Systems.
First Electricity Generating Concept Tyre
The best car tyres company Goodyear give a concept of first electricity generating tyres. The company named this concept a BH03 futuristic concept. Goodyear claimed that the first electricity generating tyres has a potential to bring a revolution in auto industry. These concept tyre will produce their own electricity that will also be very helpful to electric vehicles.
The electricity produces by the tyres will supply the electricity to the batteries of hybrid powertrain and on the other hand it will also provide the electricity to other on-board technologies as well.
The first electricity generating concept tyres will generate the electricity by two types of materials that include:
- Thermoelectric material: Through this material the rolling of tyre on roads will generate electricity.
- Piezoelectric material: Through this material the deformation of structure will generate the electricity.
The first electricity generating concept tyre is purely a concept by Goodyear tyres and yet they have no plan to launch such tyres for masses in the market.
Goodyear Triple Tube a Smart Morphing Tyre Concept
Goodyear is the best name for cars and tyres as it gives a concept of triple tube a smart morphing tyre concept. This tyre will automatically inflates and deflates to enhance the performance of the tyres. The tyres will inflate and deflates according to the road conditions, and this concept will allow the tyre to reshape according to the condition of road. Goodyear has no plan yet to launch these tyres.
These tyres can automatically adjusts in three different shapes depending upon the road conditions. The three positions are as follows:
- Eco/Safety Position: The Eco/Safety position will use an active conical shape through an optimized contact patch to help the driver to handle the vehicle on dry roads.
- Wet Safety Position: The wet safety position will help the driver in wet road through a raised tread in the center of the tyre by providing a high aquaplaning resistance. This system will help in a bigger tyre diameter that results in a narrow and long foot print.
- Sporty Position: The sporty position will helps the driver in handling the vehicle by using the active conical shape through an optimized contact patch.
The tyre is fitted with four air chambers and the tyre totally rely on an internal pump. The main air chamber will move the air to the other three individual air chambers and these chambers will help to provide an extended mobility. If the one chamber get punctured then it will still allow the driver to continue the journey.
The triple tube a smart morphing tyre concept are made of silica derived from rice husk ash and this technology was already announced by the Goodyear in 2014 and these tyres are fully sustainable.
The triple tube a smart morphing tyre is totally a concept and the Goodyear have not planned yet to make it a reality tyre. The Goodyear gives a concept of this tyre only to make the engineers think out of the box.
Future SUV Concept Tyre
Best car tyres companies always give the bests ideas to improve the technology and to enhance the performance of the tyres. The Goodyear also gives a concept of future SUV concept tyres that will be fitted with a large central groove.
Due to the large central groove the tyre will reduced a contact patch with the road and this will improve the rolling resistance. It will also enhance the fuel efficiency and will reduce the CO2 released from the vehicle. Due to the rolling resistance there is no need of engine to work hard to push the tyre forward against the friction created by its contact with the ground.

The future SUV concept tyres are designed in such a ways that will clear the mud and water from tyres and it will effectively work in rainy weather to give a strong grip on the road.
On a single SUV tyres the Goodyear will build a double contact patch tyre and this will help to support the weight on SUV due to loading. To reduce the weight of the tyre just remove a large patch of rubber from the tyre.
The Goodyear just give a concept of future SUV tyres and they are not planning to launch its production version in the market. But, this is the best concept to deal with the rolling resistance and to give the vehicle a strong grip in wet roads.
Spring Tyre – Next Generation
Goodyear always keep in mind the cars and tyres while giving any concept about the tyres. Next generation spring tyres is also concept of Goodyear. Goodyear develop this concept with the help of U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). They give the concept of this tyre to explore further into the space and these tyres will also help on rocky and uneven roads.
These are few concept tyres introduced by Goodyear Tyres Company, these concepts car tyres are simply remarkable and if the Goodyear started the production of these tyres then it will not only revolutionize the auto industry, but the Goodyear will also give a gift to masses by securing the environment and by reducing the air pollution.
