What is a tube tyre?

In 1844 Charles Goodyear invented vulcanized rubber, from then on it is used to make tyres. John Dunlop invented the air-filled or pneumatic tyre in 1888 for bicycles. Philip Strauss invented the first tube tyre in 1911, with a combination of tyre and air filled in inner tube.

The tube tyre has a separate inner tube placed inside them. If the tube tyre gets punctured then you wouldn’t be able to drive your vehicle.

How Tubeless Tyre works?

Tubeless tyres have integrally continuos ribs moulded into the bead of the tyre, so they forced the pressure of the air inside the tyre to sealed within the flanges of the metal rim wheel. In simple words, the tubeless tyre doesn’t need the inner tube to compressed the air.
