The tire industry is getting more ambitious with its tire tread pattern, and the first thing you might notice about it is that its very thin.
There are actually three basic designs, but a new, lighter version is being developed.
The new design uses carbon nanotubes and can last up to 60,000 miles (100,000 kilometers) on a single wheel, and that’s even without having to replace a rim.
That’s pretty impressive.
And the new tread design can be used on a variety of surfaces, including asphalt and even water.
It can even be used in paint, to create a reflective surface.
The design is also relatively cheap, with a price tag of just $7.
The research group, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, says it’s already been able to build a new type of tire for $1.8 million.
But it’s not clear whether the new design will be commercially available anytime soon.
“We’re going to keep doing experiments to try and understand what kinds of things we can do to improve the life of the material,” said Peter Cramer, the group’s chief scientist.
