It is a common trope that the wheel cannot be bettered, because you cannot improve on perfection. However true that is, it is also a fact that modern technology is improving our lives in ways that would seem like magic to early adopters of the wheel – so it seems that you can improve on perfection after all! Here is how technology is helping with the manufacture and installation of your tyres.
The manufacturing process now uses computers to ensure that every tyre is made to the same high quality. Ensuring consistency in the tyres means that the end users – every who uses cars – are kept much safer while on the roads, as there is less chance of faulty manufacture. Previously, when tyres were checked by eye and only occasionally tested any further, it was possible for the occasional faulty tyre to make its way into the marketplace and be fitted onto a car. Computers, able to work much more precisely and far quicker, can actually check every single tyre, making sure that they all fall into a narrow range of acceptable difference.
Manufacturing: Raw Materials
Computers enable scientists to test out new products digitally, stress testing combinations and alloys before committing valuable resources to them. This allows a computerised process to suggest alternatives to polluting and unsustainable rubber, coming up with substitutes that work as well as the original, being more eco-friendly, and at lower costs to boot.

Tyres must be fitted properly to a vehicle in order to be at their best. While this is something of an art as well as a science, that people certainly can do, and do very well, it is a fact that computers can make minute adjustments to ensure near-perfect wheel alignment and tyre balancing to achieve as close to ideal tyre positioning as is possible – and they can do it in mere seconds, compared to the many minutes that it would take a human to achieve a similar effect. If you order the best quality tyres online from Jet Wheel Tyre, you will get the advantage of all that computing power to enjoy peace of mind that you and your passengers are as safe as possible on the roads. Here’s how to do it:
- Log into the website
- Fill in your details
- Find your make and model of vehicle
- Choose your new tyres and arrange their fitting
- Follow the easy and secure payment system and await your emailed confirmation!
What Lies in the Future?
Of course, no one knows exactly what will happen in the future, but given current technology trends and stated objectives given out by vehicle manufacturers, it is almost certain that tyres will soon be communicating with drivers, alerting them to changes in their condition, pressure fluctuations (and potentially even their causes) and hot spots that could indicate unsatisfactory alignment or other issues that might become a problem if ignored. Technology is there to help us: let us embrace it and enjoy the time and effort saved!
