To understand what is tubeless tyre, one needs to understand what is tube or tubed tyre. A tube tyre has a rubber tube filled with air inside the tyre. This helps in making driving on the bumpy surface of the road smoother. It also acts as a cushion and supports the weight of the automobile.
A tubeless tyre does not have a tube inside has less weight and thus in turn reduces the total weight of the vehicle. This makes the handling of the vehicle easier and smoother.

Advantages of tubeless tyres

1. It looses air gradually and at a uniform rate. While in case of tube tyres which when punctured will swerve the vehicle and make it unstable leading to an accident.
