A tire is a crucial component of a vehicle, serving as the point of contact between the vehicle and the road. It is typically a round, rubber structure that encases a metal rim, filled with compressed air. Tires play a vital role in ensuring safe and efficient transportation by providing traction, stability, and support for the vehicle’s weight. They are designed to grip the road surface, allowing for controlled acceleration, braking, and steering. Tires come in various types, including all-season, winter, and performance tires, each tailored for specific driving conditions. Regular maintenance, such as tire rotation and pressure checks, is essential to prolong their lifespan and maintain safety on the road.
