  • Failure of an airplane tire is extremely rare.

Did you know that the main reason airplane tires dont explode on landing is their tire pressure?

Built to withstand the weight of a Boeing 777 landing at 170 mph , the engineers have designed a tire capable of inflating up to 200 psi. That is 6 times more then your average car!

It is this huge tire pressure that makes the aircraft’s tire so strong. In fact, most tires can substain 500 landings before being changed. Considering that the smoke that you see on landing is a small piece of the tire fabric . These tires are pretty tough!

What about the above picture would you say?

Well thats probably from a failure of the anti skid system( fancy braking system) and not a failure of the tire itself. Feel free to visit my other post on anti skid and Abs if you want to learn more.

Now im gonna need some airplane tires on my car... .

  • Humans occasionally fail to reach their goals because they imagine & seek, only the results. 
Many want to make lots of money but dont work for it. Many want a great relationship but wont make the necessary compromises. Many want a great physique but dont sweat for it. Its not only about what you want to enjoy, as a result. It is about what struggles you are willing to go through, during the journey to your destination that will make the difference. You need to love the fight, not only the victory! ✔💬 😉 #b737
