Are You Happy With Your Tires?

How Many Miles Are Your Tires Lasting?

Tires have evolved some but it still looks like they are over rated, just like mpg for vehicles appear not to be true, the miles rating for tires also appears to be a joke.

It makes you wonder if these measurements considered every day conditions on this earth or outer space. With that in mind, we should look at these ratings as a guideline and chop off a good 20% for reality check because you are probably a very “aggressive” driver and that is why your tires are not lasting as much as they should… Not!

Recently I read an article and survey about tires by CR, enjoy the results below :

New Material – Lighter Than Steel And 10X Stronger

The applications are endless, from aircraft to ships, from tools to construction, a stronger and lighter material than steel called Graphene is making headlines all over the world. 

The MIT has developed a proprietary 3D printing technology that enables us to print it into useful shapes. It may take some time before we see it everywhere like carbon fiber and honeycomb type of materials, and “proprietary” means it will be expensive at first. But Graphene is coming to a structure near you and it just might rock the world of building blocks!
