Tire manufacturing involves a complicated production system requiring many steps such as the mixing of raw rubber with carbon and chemicals, the molding of various types of rubber sheets into the shape of an object, the curing of the rubber into its finished form under heat, and ultimately the inspection of the tire's quality.
The production plants, meanwhile, must be equipped to produce tires of many types, from tires for passenger cars, trucks, and buses to tires for agricultural machinery, extra-large construction machinery, racing cars, and aircraft.
