Tubeless tire pros and cons

Tubeless tires are used in most of the vehicles we see on the road today. What is a tubeless tire? What are the advantages and disadvantages of a tubeless tire?

 The main parts of a tube-type tire are the tire, tube, flap, and wheel rim. But the main parts of a tubeless tire are the tire and the wheel rim. The main difference is that tubeless tires do not have a tube.


Advantages of tubeless tire

   Lightweight: Lightweight compared to tube-type tires due to fewer components. Lightweight improves the fuel efficiency of the vehicle.

   There is no sudden air leak: If the tire punctures for any reason, the tire pressure will slowly decrease. Gets time to drive to the nearest workshop. If this situation occurs while using a tube-type tire, the vehicle will no longer be able to drive.

   The puncture can be easily repaired: This type of tire puncture can be easily repaired because it does not have a tube. In the case of tube-type tires, the tube should be removed from the tire to repair the puncture.

   Better cooling capacity: In tube-type tires, the friction between the tube and the rim increases tire temperature. The tubeless tire does not have this problem so the temperature does not increase much.

   Provides good stability: Tube-type tires give poor stability at high speeds when the tire pressure is low. But even in such cases, a tubeless tire gives better stability.

   Longer life: Tubeless tires provide longer life.


Disadvantages of tubeless tire

   High price: Tubeless tires are more expensive than tube-type tires.

   Not suited for spoke-type wheels: These tires are suitable for alloy wheels. Using tubeless tires on spoke-type wheels can lead to tire pressure leakage.

   Cannot be used on damaged rim: If used on a damaged rim, there is a risk of a tire pressure leak.
