What Is Bead Filler?
Bead filler is a rubber compound located inside the tire’s bead region. It fills the space between the bead wire and the tire’s body plies.
What Is the Function of Bead Filler?
The function of bead filler is to provide stiffness and rigidity to the lower sidewall and bead area of a tire. It plays a critical role in handling characteristics, impacting the tire’s response to steering and cornering forces. By maintaining the shape of the bead, it ensures a secure fit on the wheel rim. It also contributes to the tire’s overall structural integrity.
