The second, on the other hand, allows to dampen the vibrations of the air that would otherwise be transmitted inside the vehicle with a consequent reduction of the noise generated by the rolling of the tires. This is serious; possible thanks to a particular sound-absorbing material placed in the cavity; of the tire.
