  • Publication number: 20200164700
    Abstract: To be capable of preventing deterioration of uniformity after puncture repair while suppressing running noise. [Solution] A pneumatic tire 1 comprises a noise damper 20 fixed to a tire inner cavity surface of a tread portion 2 and formed of a porous material. The noise damper 20 includes a first part 23 arranged on an outer side in a tire radial direction and fixed to the tire inner cavity surface 16, and a second part 24 arranged on an inner side in the tire radial direction of the first part 23 and exposed in a tire inner cavity 17. A water absorption rate of the first part 23 calculated by a following formula (1) is in a range of from 5% to 25%. Air permeability of the second part 24 measured in accordance with Japanese Industrial standard JIS-L1096 is in a range of from 1 to 7 cm3/cm2/s. The formula (1) is: water absorption rate (%)=weight change before and after immersion (g)/volume at 50% compression (cm3)×100 (1).
