PostHeaderIcon Meet the Goodyear Oxygene, the Tire That Makes Oxygen!

Goodyear has become the latest tire manufacturer to unveil a revolutionary tire concept that could change the industry for the better. The Ohio-based company went to the Geneva Motor Show to showcase the Oxygene, a tire concept that employs artificial intelligence, generates its own electricity, and is filled with living moss. When was the last time you saw a tire with that much capability? Never? You’d be right.

“The concept tires were developed with an emphasis on reducing material waste, emissions, and energy loss.”

I don’t claim to be an authority on subjects about tires, but even I know enough to understand that the Goodyear Oxygene borders on the realm of science fiction. Think about it. It’s crazy enough to think that a set of tires will have artificial intelligence, but to have it filled with living moss that can absorb carbon dioxide? It has all the makings of an early April Fool’s joke, but the truth is often stranger than fiction because the Oxygene Concept has the chance to be a real thing.

“With more than two-thirds of the world population expected to live in cities by 2050, the demands on transport networks in urban environments will increase substantially,” said Chris Delaney, President of Goodyear Europe, Middle East, and Africa. “Smarter, greener infrastructure and transport will be crucial in addressing the most pressing challenges of urban mobility and development.” Apparently, the Oxygene Concept is Goodyear’s contribution to that “smarter, greener infrastructure.”

“Its functions are managed by an artificial intelligence system that also allows it to communicate with other tires on other vehicles through speed-of-light LiFi technology”

The concept tires were developed with an emphasis on reducing material waste, emissions, and energy loss. It has a unique open structure that allows heat-resistant moss to grow inside the sidewalls. It also has a revolutionary tread design that can not only absorb and circulate the moisture it picks up from the road, but also inhale carbon dioxide from the air to feed the moss. Oh, and all of its functions are managed by an artificial intelligence system that also allows it to communicate with other tires on other vehicles through speed-of-light LiFi technology.

Physically, the tires are made from 3D-printed rubber powder that’s sourced from recycled tires. The process of 3D printing tires isn’t a revolutionary concept in itself — Michelin uses the same process in its airless Vision concept tire — but it does paint a clear picture on what could potentially be a future manufacturing process that will be used by a lot of today’s leading tire brands. Like the Vision concept tires, Goodyear’s Oxygene is also airless and puncture-free. It even has a shock-absorbing open tread structure that helps improve grip in wet conditions.

“The tires are made from 3D-printed rubber powder that’s sourced from recycled tires.”

With all these capabilities, it’s a wonder why Goodyear doesn’t just circumvent the concept phase of the tire and jump straight into manufacturing it. But, like most concepts, there’s that matter of defining its actual feasibility in the real world. The Goodyear Oxygene may not be there yet, but the fact that it’s already cooking something as ridiculously outlandish as this is a testament to its revolutionary instincts. “Like the concept designs Goodyear has presented at Geneva in the past, Oxygene is meant to challenge our thinking and help drive the debate around smart, safe and sustainable future mobility,” Delaney said. “By contributing in this way to cleaner air generation, the tire could help enhance the quality of life and health for city-dwellers.”

Keep selling the dream, Goodyear. We’re all here waiting to see if we’ll be buyers of it.

PostHeaderIcon The Bugatti Chiron’s Tires Are Actually Cheaper Than The Veyrons

It’s a well-known thing in automotive circles that if you own a Bugatti Veyron, the costs of maintaining it over time could be just as expensive as buying it. Annual maintenance for the almighty machine costs $20,000. If you happen to live in a state that charges car property tax, then the cost of simply owning a Veyron will set you back close to $50,000 a year. That’s like buying a Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 every year just because. Then again, none of those costs compare to the ridiculous price of the Veyron’s tires. A fresh set will set you back as much as $40,000, and you’ll only be able to drive them for 2,500 miles because they’ll have to be replaced after that. I bring all of this up because, in a recent interview with CarBuzz, Bugatti Principal Engineer Martin Grabowski revealed that the set of tires on the new Bugatti Chiron is actually much cheaper than the Veyrons. Of course, the Chiron costs three times as much as the Veyron, but I’m not worried about that. It’s those tires that matter!

To put into context, Grabowski said that the Chiron doesn’t use the specially designed Michelin Pilot Sport 2 tires that the Veyron used. Instead, Bugatti’s new supercar uses a standard rim geometry and standard mounting process, which means that according to Grabowski, “the tires can be mounted and changed anywhere.” Even better, the tires that the Chiron uses have been reportedly been tested to handle the supercar’s incredible 261-mph top speed, and quite possibly more given that Bugatti is still “testing them to see how far they can go.” And as far as the price goes, it’s expected to be “much cheaper,” according to Grabowski. He didn’t specify the actual price, but don’t be surprised if a set goes for around $20,000, which would make Grabowski’s statement technically true.

PostHeaderIcon Bridgestone To Begin Offering New Tires For The Jaguar XJ220

What’s that? You desperately want fresh rubber for your 20-plus-year-old supercar? Well, fear not, because Bridgestone is here to help. Working in conjunction with U.K.-based XJ220 specialist Don Law, Bridgestone has announced that it’s developing a next-gen tire for Jag’s decades-old two-seat speed wedge.

For some time now, XJ220 owners have had to tread carefully (see what I did there?) when it came time to actually using the XJ220’s twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6, as appropriately sized tires are no longer in production.

Now, however, following a “coming together of minds” between Bridgestone and Don Law, the tire maker will coordinate a new compound for the uber-kitty, bringing the car’s original chief development engineer and test driver along for the ride. A pre-production XJ220 model will provide the test bed.

“It’s very important to keep such iconic vehicles running today and supporting people like Don Law and his team of expert technicians,” said Christophe de Valroger, Vice President Consumer OE at Bridgestone Trope. “ Technology has moved on significantly in the last 25 years and we believe we will be able to produce a tire that will keep the smile on the face of the enthusiast drivers of the XJ220.”

The plan is to get the tires finished in time for the model’s twenty-fifth anniversary next year.

I think that’s worthy of a burnout, don’t you?

PostHeaderIcon Goodyear's Eagle-360 Tire Concept

Do you happen to remember the2004 Audi RSQ concept? Well, if you don’t, let me refresh your memory. It was the same car driven by Will Smith early on in the film iRobot as he battled a number of really pissed off robots. The whole RSQ vs. Robots scene was pretty spectacular, but did you notice how the RSQ and those large robot haulers were able to move in almost any direction? In one scene, as the first robot hauler passes the Audi RSQ you can see it rides on these large Spherical tires, and it’s safe to assume that RSQ had the same time of tire hidden behind the metal. It only took 12 years, but at the 86th Geneva International Motor show, GoodYear debuted its concept of the Eagle GT-360 – the tire that the RSQ and those robot haulers needed for unlimited maneuverability.

Along with a conceptual model, Goodyear also released some futuristic specs on the tire that may change the way cars roll, at least until they start flying anyway. Basically, the design is based on the concept of self-driving cars and will allow unlimited maneuverability with an equipped car able to move in all directions. According to Goodyear, this would contribute to safety for passengers and cope with space limitations such as tight parking spaces. Furthermore, the tires would have embedded sensors to communicate road and weather conditions to the vehicle and other vehicles on the road. The sensors would also monitor and regulate tread wear evenly to increase the life of the tire.

Another major feature of the concept is the 3D printed tread and its design. It is printed to mimic the pattern of brain coral and is able to behave like a sponge. Basically, it can stiffen in dry conditions and soften when wet for better performance and aquaplaning resistance. That’s cool and all, but how exactly will the tires be driven and how will they connect to the car? Well, we asked those questions too, so keep reading to find out what we think.

PostHeaderIcon Burnouts: The Science Behind It, What Goes Wrong, And How To Do It The Right Way

Burnouts. They are a great past time for any guy who has had a car with a little bit of power and a necessary evil for those who like to hit the quarter mile strip on the weekend. It seems pretty easy, right? Slam the gas, let the wheels break loose, steer the car, and hope people stay out of your way. Unfortunately, it’s really not that simple. The internet is littered with videos of “that guy” and the untimely demise of his car because he just didn’t know what he was doing.

See, there is a lot more to burnouts that just having raw power in your hands. There is a science to it, as well as skill. You have to know your car, how to control a skid, and everything has to be just right, or you might end up biting a curb, destroying your car’s drivetrain, hitting another car, or worse. In this article, we’re going to cover the science behind burning out, why things tend to go wrong, and discuss how to do it the right way, so you don’t end up staring in the next viral video of a driver who bites off more he can chew while leaving an auto show.

Before we get too far ahead of ourselves, I want to start by saying that there is an overwhelming number of burnout fail videos involving Mustangs. I don’t know why that is. I do have an opinion, but we’ll leave that discussion for a more appropriate forum (maybe the comments section below.) That said, I have made it a point to only include one Mustang fail video here so you Ford fans don’t get your panties in a bunch. Other bits we’ll discuss include a Chevy Camaro that eats the curb, a Dodge Charger that loses its nose, a BMW that catches on fire, and a Chevy Corvette that will need a lot more than $600 tires after a failed attempt at burning out. While it might be fun to laugh at the guys here (not that they don’t deserve to be laughed at, at least a little,) the important thing here is to identify what went wrong, why things took a nasty turn, and what you need to know so your car can live to show off another day.


PostHeaderIcon Changing Your Tyres From Winter To Summer

winter-tires

Winter has finally now passed us and those Winter tyres can come back off and be replaced with a new set of summer tyres. Do many of you even know the difference between the two or even change them at all? I wanted to make this article for you all to hit up on the point of how important it is with a test that was carried out back in 2010.

Winter tyres offer more grip in the winter due to the wider gaps in the tyre itself, but what about the summer ones, what difference do they make in the heat? How do they work?

Summer tyres deliver excellent driving and braking performance on wet and dry roads. The tread pattern as seen here, you can see the difference between the snow tread and summer tread:

tread

The summer tread pattern ensures that they grip well to the road remaining as rigid as possible at all times. So come rain, sunshine summer tyres are your perfect choice for the ultimate performance.

All Season Tyres

Obviously it is in the name, right? These kinds of tyres are suited to all weathers, in fact, this is what most people in the UK fit to their cars. Though they are “All season” tyres, there not the ultimate performer in the dry and wet months, they perform much better in icy conditions, this is because they have more sips in so the tread bites into the surface to give more grip in those freezing winter months. If you are in a place that snows a lot and has more winter months than places such a the UK then I suggest getting a proper pair of snow tread tyres.

The 2010 Audi Tyre Test

In 2010, Audi performed a tyre test during the summer months and compared it to the Winter months on a track. So here is a graph I created for a comparison:

graph

Obviously the summer Tyres came out on top here in the dry and wet tests. The winter tyre averaged 10% behind its counterpart which was far closer than expected! Now, the snow test on the other hand had 50% less grip! The all season tyre was similar to the winter tyre, which offered a little more grip in the wet & dry and less in the snow. You can find cheap tyres for all weather conditions by performing a quick search online.

PostHeaderIcon Goodyear's New Concept Tires

Tire technology has always been something of a black art – even the word “vulcanization” refers to a pagan god long associated with sorcery and the fiery underworld. Prior to having a rubber-hardening process named after him, Vulcan was also the patron deity of alchemy – the practice of “transmuting” one substance or energy into another. Today’s chemistry and physics owe much to this “black art;” the First Law of Thermodynamics, for example, is little more than a restatement of alchemy’s “principle of equivalent exchange.”

Nobody’s saying tire tech is a “black art” in the sense of being occult – more in the respect that no matter how much they’ve advanced in the last century, tires have always looked pretty much the same, and performed the same job. The black art of tire development has long put improvements under the surface, with outward revolution the exception and gradual evolution the rule.

But every so often, something comes along to truly revolutionize everything we believe about what a thing is or what it does.

Meet the Goodyear BH03 Thermoelectric and TripleTube tires, introduced in Geneva last week.

PostHeaderIcon I Tortured Cooper Winter Tires

I am testing a set of winter tires from Cooper Tire to see how much benefit a driver in the snow belt will receive, and so far I have learned a lot. With lots of ice, slush and just plain freezing temps on clear roads, I have discovered why winter tires are a smart purchase. That said, I really can’t give a full review of these tires unless I get a chance to test them in real heavy winter conditions. As it happens, Cooper was holding a winter-tire testing event in Canada, and our tires were on the list of included products.

I asked if I could follow the team up to Canada to give the tires a good flogging on ice and snow, and they were more than happy to oblige. As a bonus I got a chance to test out a new all-season tire that is supposed to be nearly as good as winter rubber in the snow, I was able to test a more performance-oriented SUV winter tire, and I even learned how to drift a BMW on ice. If you remember the mayhem that happened the last time I got to be a tire tester, well, it happened again. This time we killed a Jeep though, not a Corvette.

PostHeaderIcon One Month With The Cooper Tire WM-SA2

A few weeks ago I asked if you should use winter tires on your car, even if you don’t see that much snow. Well I have since slapped a set of winter rubber from Cooper Tire on my daily driver and have spent a few weeks trekking through the gray, wet and slushy mess that is winter in East Tennessee. So far the tires have seen rain storms that turned to ice storms, snow in the Appalachian mountains, clear roads but with temperatures in the single digits, and even a few random warm days with temps near 60.

Overall in the last month or so, I have experienced three of the four seasons with my winter tires and I have lived to tell the tale. But more than that, I have learned a lot about what makes my tire choice a smart decision in this climate, and what makes it seem less intelligent.
