As we all know that most of the Indian expressway is made up of concrete and we all know that concrete is enemy of the tyre.Because when a tyre continuously running on concrete at high speed it increases tyre pressure due to friction between concrete and tyre and tyre will burst if it cant hold up the pressure.Concrete also reduce the life of tyre.


Now the Question is how we can overcome this situation?
