Fun Did You Know!

Did you know that car tyre's are actually naturally white?

The natural colour of rubber is white, therefore tyre’s if left in their natural state would be white. Why are they black? The black originally came as a byproduct of adding carbon to strengthen the tyre. This was later replaced by silica for the majority of modern tyre production. The colour black has remained constant for aesthetic reasons like being able to withstand dirt and the colour complementing any colour car.
