This video explains how a Michelin tire is made. It starts with a complex assembly of many different pieces composed of a variety of natural and synthetic materials. The rubber is produced by mixing natural and synthetic rubber with different chemical products. The composition of the rubber varies in the same tire, depending on the specific mixture that is created. Care is taken to create each mixture specifically to meet the demands of flexibility, resistance, and adhesion. Large amounts of metal and synthetic materials are also used. The tire is manufactured on the drum, a rotary wheel with a flexible part that allows the ends to be brought closer.
