Have you ever noticed that the color of the tires of all vehicles, whether it’s a bike, car, truck, or airplane, is always black? Have you also wondered why tires are always black, even though there are many other colors available in the world? This is a common question that arises in the minds of many people. Today, we are going to explore the answer to this question.

Tires are made of rubber, and naturally, rubber has a whitish or milky white color. However, the reason why tires are black is because carbon black is mixed with rubber to prepare them. This mixing process makes the tires stronger, more durable, and more flexible. As a result, by adding carbon black to the rubber compound, the tires become more resistant to wear and tear and have a longer lifespan.

The addition of carbon black to the rubber also helps to absorb harmful UV rays from the sun, thus protecting the tires from degradation due to sunlight exposure. This is an important factor that contributes to the longevity and reliability of the tires.

In addition to the practical benefits of adding carbon black to rubber, the black color also makes tires appear clean and sleek. It also gives them a professional look and makes them easily blend in with the overall aesthetic of the vehicle.

So, the next time you see black tires on a vehicle, you’ll know that it’s not just a random choice, but a result of a deliberate and beneficial manufacturing process.
