The automotive tire is an essential component of every vehicle since it protects and comforts the driver and passengers. The primary purpose of the tire is to act as a barrier between the wheel rim and the road surface, so preventing any damage to the wheel. Because the support provided by an airless tire does not depend on air pressure, this type of tire is also known as a non-pneumatic tire (NPT) or a flat-free tire. Because this type of tire does not require air pressure, there is no longer a need to periodically add air to the tires. Because it is made of rubber, it functions as a cushion that is both flexible and resilient, mitigating the effect of vibrations and absorbing the shock that the automobile causes. Solid or non-pneumatic tires, which do not rely on air pressure, are alternate names for airless tires. They are typically made of plastic or rubber, although 3D printing is also being used in their production.
