Did you know?

Overloading will greatly reduce tire life

Overloading affects driving safety and accelerates tire wear!

Gain a better understanding of the actual load of domestic truck tires to ensure proper tire pressure. See the Giti Tire Technical Book or ask your Giti Tire representative for more information.

Over inflation will lead to tire blowout which affects driving safety and increases operating costs!

What Is a Tube Tire?

• Tire Consists of 3 Components: tire casing, tube, and flap
• Wheel consists of 5 components and is more susceptible to damage or failure due to the number of components

What Is a Tubeless Tire?

• Tubeless and tube tires have the same outer diameter so the gear ratio will remain the same before and after a tire change
• Rim diameter is 2 inches wider and has better heat dissipation; tire + rim = lower tire temperature
• Carries the same load but with a lighter rim

Tube vs Tubeless: Which One Is Better?
1. Tubeless Tire Is 10% Lighter Than a Tube Tire

Limitations of Tube Tires

Too many components lead to lower rolling efficiency

Increased fuel consumption

Poor heat dissipation leads to higher tire temperatures and shorter tire life

Ovate contact areas are more susceptible to partial wear

Too many components increases weight

Deflates rapidly when punctured

Advantages of Tubeless tires

Lower sidewalls provide more accurate and safer steering and handling

Fewer components, less friction, and lower rolling resistance for better fuel savings

Excellent heat dissipation leads to lower tire temperatures and longer tire life

Leveled rectangular contact areas have uniform wear and increase tire life

Fewer components lightens weight and reduces fuel consumption

3. Tubeless Tires Improve Vehicle Safety and Handling

Wide Base Tires Are Safer, More Economical, and More Eco-Friendly

Utilizes radial, optimal aspect ratio, and tubeless techniques to optimize tire performance and replace regular dual tires.

The following 5 advantages are in line with today’s automotive industry themes of safety, fuel saving, and eco-friendly:

Advantage 1: Lighter Vehicle Weight for Higher Load Capability

• Wide base tires are lighter than dual tires (i.e. lighter by 30% for 1-1-3 vehicle models)
• Reduced tire weight can be converted into load capability to bring more economic benefits (i.e. more than RMB 20,000 worth of benefits can be calculated per vehicle per year for 1-1-3 vehicle models)

Advantage 2: Better Fuel Efficiency Lowers Cost

• Giti Tire’s tests in Yunnan have proven that wide base tires can save more than 4% fuel when compared to dual tires

Advantage 3: Wider Wheelbase and Lower Center of Gravity for Safer and Easier Handling

• Wheelbase of single tires is about 4% more than that of dual tires
• Wider wheelbase and lower center of gravity improve vehicle stability for safer and easier handling

Advantage 4: Easier Installation for Higher Operational Efficiency

• Using the 1-1-3 vehicle model as example, installing 6 single tires on the trailer wheel position is equivalent to installing 12 dual tires which greatly reduces both installation and maintenance time
• When installing dual tires, tires with different air pressure on the same axle will lead to uneven load and wear which affects operational efficiency

Advantage 5: Better Heat Dissipation Enhances Tire Life

• Wide base tires have two fewer sidewalls than dual tires, generates less heat, enhances heat dissipation, increases tire wear resistance, and improves tire life

What is Nitrogen?

• Nitrogen (N2) is colorless and tasteless
• Has low thermal conductivity
• Nitrogen molecules are larger than oxygen molecules
• Nitrogen is stable and does not easily react with other substances at room temperature

 

Advantages of Nitrogen Filled Tires:

 

Minimize Tire Blowouts

Nitrogen’s low thermal conductivity decelerates heat accumulation and significantly reduces tire blowouts

Minimize Tire Blowouts

Nitrogen molecules are larger than oxygen molecules and penetrate the tire wall slower than air

Minimize Tire Blowouts

Does not contain water or other substances which effectively inhibits the tire and rim from slowly oxidizing and corroding

Minimize Tire Blowouts

Nitrogen slows tire pressure loss, decreases tire temperature, and reduces rolling resistance caused by insufficient air pressure and high tire temperatures

Tip: Nitrogen filing cannot replace routine air pressure maintenance.
Please check your tire pressure regularly!
