The Boostrac tire navigates desert driving with optimal traction by forming gaps among blocks, in all directions, through the principle of tread warping. In addition, the changeover has the effect of raising the vehicle’s height and preventing it from sinking in dirt to make continued driving possible. This tire not only reduces manufacturing costs through the use of a modular manufacturing configuration, but also lowers the consumer cost burden, reducing waste and ultimately contributing toward saving the environment.
