March 5, 2020—Goodyear debuted Goodyear ReCharge which plans for tires to regenerate new tire tread, reported CNET.

The ReCharge tire takes capsules that a vehicle owner would administer when tread life wears down. The biodegradable compound, made from spider-silk-inspired material, restores itself with a liquid compound capsule. The compound in this concept would be able to morph for driving conditions, whether it was summer or winter.

The concept could eliminate the need to check tire pressure.
