TT vs TL Tires – What’s the Difference?
The tires play a major part in how well a vehicle functions. It is important to understand the different types of tires and how to take care of them. This will make sure you have the right tires for the work and that they will last a long time saving costs in the long run. In this post, we will take a look at TT and TL tires and how they are different from each other. Choosing tires can be hard as there are so many tires to choose from but after reading this you will have an easier time.
TT tires – Tube Tires
TT is short for tube-type tires. The tire is made using an inner tube placed in the middle of the tire. The tube has a valve of a specific size. Because of the inner tube if in case of a puncture, you can replace the inner tube easily without having to replace the whole tire. If a TT tire is deflated there would be a sudden loss of air and the tires would fall flat right away. TT tires are commonly used in heavy machinery, tractors, transport trucks, and smaller vehicles, such as bicycles and motorcycles.
TL tires – Tubeless Tires
TL is short for tubeless tires. TL tires are made using newer technology and are made to fit the TL tire rim. The fit is perfect and creates an airtight seal without the help of rim tape. The valve is located on the rim with a rubber seal. Because of this, when a puncture takes place or when the tire loses air, it happens gradually. This makes it possible to detect and repair the leak before an accident takes place.
TL tires are the result of tire manufacturers who wanted to find a solution for TT tires that would lose air suddenly. At high speeds, this is extremely dangerous and is likely to result in road accidents. TL tires are made with a single layer located inside of the tire carcass. This also made the tire lighter and formed a seamless seal onto the wheel. Depending on the use, choosing the right tire will help the job get done faster and cheaper.
TL tires are commonly used in commercial truck tires, light trucks, newer tractors, SUVs, and passenger cars.
