Improving the efficiency of tires is key to increasing the overall sustainability of today’s tire value chain.​​


The automotive industry is undergoing a transformational shift from internal combustion engines  to electric vehicles (EVs).   

Tread formulators are increasingly focused on delivering tires that can extend range and withstand the heavier weight and higher torque of EVs, which can result in a 30% increase in tire wear* and more end-of-life tires generated over the lifespan of the vehicle.

Our PROPEL® E Series products offer a range of surface areas with very high structure to improve the tradeoff between hysteresis and abrasion, delivering low rolling resistance and enhanced tread durability for extended tire life span.
