Tubeless tires are installed on the wheels of this
The main advantage of tubeless tires
is an added measure of driving safety.
I n the event
of a puncture, tubeless tire do not blowout but
instead tend to lose air gradually. Another advantage
is cooler running characteristics.
The tire and rim form a leakproof unit by making
airtight contacts at the tire chafers and the rim flanges
instead of using an inner tube.
The tires, r.ims,
air valves on this
deSigned only for tubeless
and air valves must be used for replacement. For correct
performance, do not install a tube
a tubeless tire.
Structure of the tubeless tire is characterized by
an inner liner and chafers.
The inner liner is a layer of thicker rubber which
covers the inside wall of the tire. The inner I iner is
made from special quality of rubber which is hard to
admit the air.
Generally chafers reinforce tire beads
which are likely damaged by friction with the rim
The chafers of tubeless tires have a characteristic of
airtightness as well.
Since airtightness of tubeless tires is accomplished
by closely seating the chafers
good condition on the
rim, be careful not to damage the chafers when handling
tu beless ti res.

The tires are designed to provide good traction and
power transmission during acceleration and braking,
even on bad surfaces. To do this, they must be inflated
to the correct pressure and not overloaded
recommended load, in addition to vehicle weight, is
If the tires are inflated to too high a pressure, the
ride is rough, the center portion of the tread wears
quickly, and the tires are easily damaged.
If inflation pressure is too low, the shoulder portions
the cord suffers damage, fuel consumption
is high and handling is poor. In addition, heat builds up
at high speeds, and tire life is greatly shortened.
