Limited: Tires..synthetic rubber, carbon black..passenger..touring

Customer Question

I am looking to obtain an idea of percentage of raw materials used for different types of Tires. Like what % of natural rubber, synthetic rubber, carbon black, steel tire cord, fabrics and other chemicals are used for the following types of Tires:

(a) regular all season passenger tires
(b) all season touring passenger tires
(c) light truck tires
(d) winter tires

I just need approximate percentages based on objective facts. This is not limited to a particular brand or company or region.

Or if you cannot get me the percentages, please tell me whether proportion of one material such as rubber will increase or decrease if we go from regular all season to performance tires etc.

No unfortunately it does not. I am looking for something like this:

Passenger Tire

Natural rubber 14 %
Synthetic rubber 27%
Carbon black 28%
Steel 14 - 15%
Fabric, fillers, accelerators,antiozonants, etc. 16 - 17%

I need this for different types of tires listed earlier in my request
Expert:  Tom replied 3 years ago.
Ok let me look a few things up . Might take some time but will post what I have later if that's ok.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Please do. Please make sure you explain me the rationale if you have to make some assumptions - like winter tires have more threads, and hence they would need more proportion of one of these materials. etc.

Thanks
