Materials matter

Tires are complex products requiring a large number of individual materials, all of which are critical to the tire’s performance.

Black Donuts’ asset is understanding of the entire tire manufacturing process as well as our experience of how different materials work together. Some think that there is a secret archive where you can pick favorite recipes for certain tires, or that a certain mix of reinforcement materials is unbeatable in any conditions, but it is always the entity that counts. The tread design, compounds, mold design, structure, and the manufacturing process affect each other. It is only when all these elements work seamlessly together that a successful product can be created.
