The Evolution of Tires

November 23, 2015 | Tires

Here at Western Tire Recyclers we primarily focus on recycling off-the-road (OTR) tires into water tanks and rubber mulch. Tires are meant to withstand a lot of wear and tear, which is why recycling them is so important – rubber can last for around 100,000 years! Because of this, failing to properly dispose of old tires can lead to significant environmental challenges and concerns. However, rubber and tires are both a significant part of our lives, and have been for many, many years. But just how long have we been using rubber in our tires? To answer that question, we’ve created a simple infographic to help teach you a little bit about the history of tires. Take a look!

While this infographic refers mainly to the normal car tires on the road today, this is where OTR tires came from as well. So the next time you have some OTR tires that have reached the end of their road, bring them to Western Tire Recyclers – the most dependable tire recyclers in Utah. We will make sure that they are properly taken care of so that you can rest easy, knowing that you were responsible in helping to protect the environment from improper tire disposal.
