There are things on earth that they just happen and people acknowledge them, aware of them without questions. Why are the car tires always black? Have you ever raised this question? In fact, many of us ignore finding the answer as well because using black tires is a shared formula of all the tire producers since very long ago.
In fact, the first tires were made white
So what’s is the correct answer? Let’s, with Naijauto.com, find out today.
1. The perks of Carbon Black
This is the first and foremost reason the car tires get the color black. Carbon black acts as a stabilizing chemical which works in conjunction with other polymers in forming the tire’s tread.
With carbon black in its components, the tire’s lifespan is significantly improved due to the protection from ozone’s hazardous effects.
The carbon black also works as a shield from UV rays to minimize the damage from heat while quick at absorbing the heat and returning it to the road surface to evade blown-out tires on the highway.
Those are enough reason why the whole world gravitates towards using carbon black in making tires.

2. Black - the best color to absorb heat
Aside from carbon black, the color black of the tires itself is hectically involved in absorbing heat as well, hence less tear and wear and better handling and steering, and more accurate braking, etc.

3. Easier maintenance
The first and most apprehensible point of using black car tires is the ease when doing a cleaning or maintaining job. And, though making a white tire is not that hard (adding titanium dioxide and zinc oxide is enough to bring more tint to the tire) but let’s agree that throughout the times of use, the weather condition will gradually put a “gloomy coat” on the tires and be more likely to accelerate the time of your next tire change.
So why do we have to add up for the short-term fancy white tires while the black ones are more durable and cost-effective? By the way, we can choose to enhance the car’s aesthetics by color its rims and wheel covers, right?
