Abstract This report studies the economic and social costs and benefits of a passenger car tire design service life of 100,000 miles (160,900 kilometers), retreading, and four resource recovery methods for solid waste tires: (1) cryogenics with recovered rubber use, mixed with asphalt, in repairing roads; (2) incineration of whole tires; (3) pyrolysis; and (4) landfill. Symbolic models of tire costs and benefits are presented along with a computer program for their calculation. A shift in new tire design service life is recommended, along with increased retreading and with solid waste tire processing by cryogenics for use as tire asphalt rubber in repairing roads. Three methods of producing 100,000 mile tires are proposed; one, the TTW 100,000 mile tire, is discussed in some detail.
