The tube is a hollow toroidal rubber enclosure filled with air to cushion the load of the vehicle riding on the wheel. Air is filled into it through a self-sealing nozzle.
During its prolonged usage the air gets slowly released by way of permeation through the tube in addition to leakage of the valve of the nozzle; in such cases it is refilled to the required pressure.
The innermost lining of the tyre in a conventional tyre is of smooth rubber and is designed to reduce friction between the tube and the tyre during running.
The main difference between the tube type tyre and the tubeless tire is that the tubeless tire is itself the tube.
The plies of the tyre are similar, i.e. cross ply or radial ply depending on the type of tyre. But the inner lining layer is made up of halogen-butyl rubber like chlorobutyl rubber or bromobutyl rubber.
