Plane Crash

How Much A Plane Tyre Costs In Kenya And The Only Firms Manufacturing Them Worldwide

Except for helicopters, planes always land with the help of tyres. These tyres are designed in such a way that they can be hidden when the plane is flying and can emerge or be made to do so when the plane is landing.

The tyres are slightly bigger than that of ordinary cars and of course, they are not the same.

Planes tyres are designed in such a way that they can withstand the pressure exerted on them by the plane. They are only four but will bring move the whole plane through the airstrip highway and finally into a constant halt. This they are able to do without bursting. Of course, they are not as prone to bursting as those of cars.


One tyre of a plane costs Ksh 160,000. They are this expensive because of their value. The tyres are filled with nitrogen gas which does not support combustion. This is because the breaks, which are located next to each tyre always heats up to 500°C.

If the tyres were filled with oxygen, there is likely to be a fire breakout. They are worth the amount. We only have three companies in the whole world making these tyres. These companies, if it is necessary to mention, include Michelin, Goodyear and Bridgestone.

Planes, with the exception of helicopters, always land on their tyres. These tyres are meant to be hidden when the plane is in flight and to emerge or be forced to emerge as the plane is landing. The tyres are significantly larger than those used on regular cars, and they are not identical.


The tyres of planes are intended to resist the pressure exerted by the plane. They're only four, yet they'll propel the entire jet through the airstrip highway and eventually to a complete stop. They are capable of doing so without bursting. They are not, however, as prone to bursting as those  found in automobiles.


A plane's tyre costs Ksh 160,000. They are this pricey due to their rarity. Nitrogen gas is used to fill the tyres, which does not support combustion. This is due to the fact that the brakes, which are placed adjacent to each tyre, are constantly heated to 500°C. A fire would very certainly break out if the tyres were loaded with oxygen. They're well worth the money. There are just three firms in the world that make these tyres. If it's required to name names, Michelin, Goodyear, and Bridgestone are among them.
