TILTREAD OYNAMIC TIRES

Revolution of Sport tire

The tilting system which works through the partitioned tires with automatic control suspension maximizes the tread area of each partitioned tire. Also lowers car body by tilting the shaft when cornering. Delivers excellent grip and confident cornering. 

Straightaway

High speed through maximum grip on straightaway.

  1. Non-pneumatic tires

    Resilient polyurethane airless tire to prevent blowout .

  2. Three discrete motors

    Adjusts each tire’s speed when cornering.

Extreme cornering

Maximized contact ratio and dispersion of surface tension by tilting system provides dynamic but stable cornering.

Motiv off road Tire

Exhilarating adventure

Motiv is the most flexible tire to run in extreme conditions and blowouts are not a concern.

Variable Blocks

Variable Blocks

Flexible polyurethane blocks move separately according to surface shape.

Tilting Center Hub

Tilting Center Hub

Provides ultimate grip by flexible chamber and expanding tread.

The smartest hybrid tire

eMembrance provides not only fuel efficiency but also excellent grip for high speed.

Fuel Efficiency

Less road contact reduces rolling resistance and uses less energy.

Smart Lighting System - Signals movement of car with light.

Full Grip

Maximum road contact through shape memory alloy provides excellent grip and sport performance.

Intelligent future tire

MAG-TRAC is a smart tire that breaks the frame of a tire.
Empty space through magnetic fields allows cars to move comfortably and quietly.

Standby

Repulsive forces between same poles make it stand comfortably.

Smart Lighting System - Signals movement of car with light.

Rolling

Opposite poles by instant current makes it roll.
