Kumho receives design awards for airless and semi-airless tyres

Korean tyre company Kumho has received accolades from the 2020 International Design Excellence Awards for two of its tyres. The first, called the e-NIMF, is an airless concept which the brand says mimics traditional pneumatic tyre characteristics – a difficult feat for airless tyres. As well as being maintenance-free, Kumho claims the e-NIMF can also be rejuvenated with new tread when worn down, reducing waste.

How much difference do winter tyres make on ice? - video

Ever wondered what kind of difference winter tyres make on icy roads? A new video from North American tyre fitter Tire Rack has set out to do just that. Although they're not really necessary in much of Australia, whether to bother with cold-weather specific rubber is a critical decision in frostier parts of the world. This video compares summer and winter tyres on both all-wheel and rear-wheel drive vehicles, showing just how much of a difference the right rubber can make.
