The tire industry, for the less put, it seems that it takes time without moving. Nothing could be further from the reality. Advances small or little visible make of these elements of the vehicle one of the most important parts, and Yokohama now introduces its next breakthrough. It is about tires aerodynamic, with fins on the outer flanks.
Yes, it is not a novelty at the domestic level, and that this development takes a few years in the table. Up to the time the manufacturer had worked on aerodynamic devices on the inner part of the tire, but now has the new evolution, a new design that will be present in the next Living in Tokyo at the end of this month.
aerodynamics is a key factor in cars today, much more in the future. The reduction of friction, and, therefore, consumption plays a crucial role which now also comes into play the tire. Yokohama proposes that the air that moves your tire are dealt by the side of the body more efficiently.
With computer studies the manufacturer has developed a kind of fins placed on the outside flank of the rubber that allow you to move the air in a controlled manner. There is not too much data yet, but it would be interesting to know the benefits in the resulting the addition of these elements, a comparison with one car and two tires, the conventional and the evolution of Yokohama.
Will also have to know what impact on the weight the tire has this new invention and, of course, if it affects or does not adversely affect the benefits of the same. What is clear is that the tyre of the future will have spoilers, and I don’t doubt that you probably will end up being also customizable.
