UK road statistics show that each year more than 500,000 breakdown incidents on U.K roads are caused by tyre punctures and blow outs, with 45% of these incidents resulting in severe accidents.The main contributing factor for tyre punctures and blowouts is the sudden drop in pressure of a tyre. This sudden drop in tyre pressure can be caused by under-inflated tyres which get very hot due to an increase in friction and eventually burst. A sudden drop in pressure can also be caused by a sharp object puncturing your tyre causing it to burst.
In the event of a tyre puncture, the only option you have is to call out for breakdown assistance or change the tyre yourself. Either option has its drawbacks, as breakdown assistance will only change your tyre with a spare tyre, meaning you still have to get a new tyre. Changing your tyre yourself will have drawbacks of its own as your car may not have a spare tyre at all, this due to car manufacturers replacing spare tyres with ineffective, “get me home” puncture repair solutions.
With the UK government announcing that all new cars and vans sold in the UK after 2035 will have to be electric, the future looks green. Unfortunately, the future does not look so green for “tyre particle pollution”. The future is quite the opposite in fact as electric cars are very heavy and produce a lot of torque, the combination of an increase in weight and torque of electric cars and vans will significantly increase tyre wear and “tyre particle pollution”.
