Ceat launches Color Tread Wear Indicator Tyres

Written by Akhil Dalvi

It is quite a well-known fact that vehicle ownership certainly involves the eventual wear and tear of tyres. This holds especially true when it comes to the vehicles being driven on the harsh tarmac of Indian roads. Therefore, most owners across India are unable or lax enough to check the tread on their tyres after continuous use. To help owners out, Ceat has announced the launch of its breakthrough product called the Color Tread Wear Indicator Tyres.

Ceat Color Tread Wear Indicator Tyres: Benefits & Uses 

Ceat’s new innovative product for India aims to enhance customer safety by giving a tyre change indication to the user. The tyre manufacturer has embedded a yellow strip within the tread portion of the tyre that remains invisible when new. Over time, as the tyre wears off, this yellow strip will start appearing, indicating the time to change the tyre. The uniqueness of this innovation is that it makes it obvious to the owner that the tyre has neared its end.

Additionally, this method will also help in reducing potential accidents caused due to the absence of tyre grip. Ceat will offer their new Milaze X3 tyres in 15-inches/16-inches for the Toyota Innova owners in India with this new feature. Ceat’s recent insight studies also revealed that most vehicle owners are not aware of the timing to change their tyres. Therefore, the company’s new product will allow them to fulfil their vision of ‘Making Mobility Safer & Smarter’ for customers.
