Why are Tyres Black?
Adarsh

"I was watching the cars go by and it struck me that all tyres are black. I wondered why?

Answers
pattykakeskidz
One answer could be to avoid reflection so as not to blind drivers. Another answer could be to hide the dirt that the tyre accumulates from all the dirt on roads.
Isabelle
They are black because they are made of black rubber.... or the producers have no idea how to make any other colours...
P. senthil kumar
As Black body is a good radiator of heat. The heat from the tyre will be given out quickly increasing the life of the tyre
metkar raj
Most people think of tyres as black rubber but it’s not the rubber that makes them black – carbon black powder is the critical ingredient that not just gives the colour but also provides the structural strength that tyres need – both on the road and the race track. A tyre typically contains around 30% of carbon black which is one of the most critical ingredients in tyre construction. Simply, it is manufactured by burning crude oil and manufacturers around the world offer ever-improving qualities
vivekkannan
They are black because it is made up of black rubber which is harder type of rubber to prevent the puncture.
Mauricio
Because the rubber that is black is harder to brake so that is why
mukesh
At the time of manufacturing of tyre large amount of sulphur is added to provide good strength and rigidity to tyres so they can be used for long time even in greater friction place.
Isha
It is because black colour absorbs more heat which can help the car to run.
Will Dendy
It's because they are visible in the pit garages. When white tyres were banned in July 29th 1998, it was proven to be better to have black ones.
clement
When tyres were first manufactured all they wanted was durability, road grip and strength to enhance all this. They used different chemicals as told above. so the best combination obtained was black in colour.
ankita
It is because black absorbs heat.
Faisal
Because the road is also made by Tar coal which is black other color will have dirt on it so thats why using black tyre
sohbana
I think it is because the tyres which is black will not absorb heat. Therefore it will not explode when it is on the road which is heated by the sun.
krupa
Most tire compounds are brownish color. In unprotected forms, rubber compounds degrade as a result of ozone( part of the air that we breathe). When ozone combines with ultraviolet light from the sun, it attacks the tire polymer. To prevent tires from rapidly deteriorating, a sacrificial absorber is used, "carbon black" - which, fittingly, makes tires black (carbon black is also used in inks, paints, crayons, and polishes).
Udhaykumar
The answer given by Metkar Raj is the correct one. The tyres contains the old good soot which makes them black.
