WHAT YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT TIRES
HOW TIRES IMPACT OUR DAILY LIVES
when we think of tires ,most of us would probably think of small passenger cars tires, as we are use to seeing all the time, But did you know, our world couldn't function properly without a tire industry, tires are what makes the world go around,can you imagine the amazing impact it would have, if we never had, or invented tires, it would be like an ocean with out any fish.
The tire you see above is a 2400-49 Earth moving tire which can transport approximately a whole football Field worth of dirt in 2 loads, these amazing large dump trucks cost around 1.2 million dollars and the tire cost can range from 3000 to 4000 per tire. these machines mostly work in quarries, and large developing area.
This picture was taken in the early 1940s
ONCE the largest tire on record that has since been broken 25 to 35 years ago going back in time this must have been quit a site to see back in those days.
Although a lot of folks view this as the largest tire in the world, I would disagree with that,only because it's a non-functioning tire, this tire was produced ,for advertising and drawing in large crowds for selling purposes, and I am sure it does very well, but isn't used on any kind of equiment.
FARM TRACTOR REAR TIRE 18.4-38 FRONT 13.6-24
well if we didn't have tires ,our farmers wouldn't have any way to harvest, our fruits and vegetables ,that we need to live on, and provide our kids, the healthy foods for growing up, like good old corn potatoes, beans , wheat ,apples oranges, and even hay for the cows that give us our fine beefs ,and other animals that depend on tires on these farm equipment ,that we need to live normal and healthy lives, and this is done because tires are on the tractors, that harvest these fine foods.
BOBCAT TIRES SIZE 12-16.5
This bobcat machine above is equip with 12-16.5 tires and is a construction owners best friend with out these machines they can not profit any money from there business ,these machine are responsibl for small jobs that are a powerful machine that would take four men to replace what this machine does in one, and keeps millions of people around the world working, and supporting there families, with out these tires, you could see what kind of effect it would have our industry.
TRACTOR TRAILER HAULS WHAT NEEDS TO BE HAULED
TRACTOR TRAILER TIRE
These tires play an very important roll in our daily lives, because with out these tires. Tractor trailers wouldn't be able to move and deliver any products, ranging from food they we eat to furniture we sit on, and even Important medicines we need daily, across country.
These tires,are for long haul and get around 40 to 50 thousand miles out of them, and help employ millions of people around the world.
FORKLIFTS TIRE SIZE 700-12 FRONT & 650-10 REAR
Well those tractor trailers we talked about earlier ,we wouldn't be able to load those Trailers with out any forklift tires ,and they play a huge roll in our industry, most forklift tires are a solid tire that doesn'trequire air in them, these forklifts are able to lift up to 4000 lbs and load and unload tractor trailers, with ease.
CONTAINER STACKER TIRE SIZE 1800-25
These machines, are called container stacker's, there responsible for the stacking of containers in the ship yards, these machines help unload and reload ships and stack and move containers were ever needed , for the containers that are importing and exporting of millions of products, in which we use daily ,with out these tires nothing would be coming into or going out of our country, these tires are heavy duty and can lift up to 50,000 lbs and play a key roll in our shipping industry.
PASSENGER CAR TIRES
Just think of what we would do if we had no tires for our cars ,how would we be able to go to work and support our families, or how could we take a vacation, with out tires on our car or truck.
The military tires have changed over the last 50 years or so, there are so much life saving technology today,even from tires, your probably asking, how could that be, well years ago they never had tires, that could with stand a 50 MM bullet hole, in the tire,which made some of our soldiers voluble ,in the battle field, in the past ,but in today's world ,they have come up with solid tires, for protecting military vehicles and soldiers in combat, these tires can take a bullet and continue moving on, like nothing even happened.
What kind of a world would we be with out aircraft tires, not a very good one, airplanes are the means of getting from ocean to ocean and with out tires we wouldn't be going very far, and our fighter jets depend on all kinds of tires.
EARTH MOVING TIRE
Take a look at the gentlemen on the right he must be really short or those tires are really huge.
RACING CAR TIRES
RACING CAR TIRES
Lets face it, even our entertainment would be effected, with out tires, these fast cars wouldn't be able to compete ,we couldn't be able to sit and watch our favorite races, these tires are high performance tires that have a speed rating up to 180 MPH and are built special just for racing cars.
HOW A SINGLE TIRE ALMOST CHANGED HIS LIFE
HOW THE TIRE HAS CHANGED OVER THE YEARS
This is only a few industries that have talked about, its only a spit in the bucket, for how many more different kinds of tires are still out there, I would say there are millions , all of these tires have played a huge impact in our great country and the world ,I could go on and on, there are so many more different applications ,that people don't even know about. so next time you see any kind of tire , large or small ask about and learn how it effects your daily life, because Tires make the world go around.
