How much does a Tire Weigh?

When they first appeared, tires were made out of steel covering wooden wheels, used for wagons and carts. The first rubber tire was made by John Boyd Dunlop in 1887, in his attempt to replace his son’s bicycle wheels. The material used for pneumatic tire is mainly rubber with reinforcing materials such as wire and fabric. In the 20th century the first tire companies appeared, and the industry grew up along with the auto industry. The weight of a tire depends on its size, but the average weight is 22Ibs.
