Wide or narrow tyres? What you choose will affect your driving...
Many drivers want their summer tyres to look flashier than their winter equivalents. That is why wider and lower tyres are usually selected for the summer, whereas narrower tyres are commonly used in the winter. The tyre choice affects the car’s appearance, driving comfort, and many other characteristics. In Central Europe, car owners usually have two sets of rims: one for the summer and another for the winter. A common choice is to use slightly larger and more expensive rims for the summer tyres.

Exceeding US vehicle fire safety standards by a factor of five
A decisive step has been taken by igus towards the fire protection in car interior applications with the 3D print material iglidur I3. Not only is the material extremely wear-resistant and therefore an all-rounder for all types of wear resistant parts, it also meets the requirements for the FMVSS 302 fire test. In the tests, the measured calorific value is approximately five times lower than the maximum permitted limit.
