Moreover, they feed data from sensors embedded in the tire into an artificial intelligence program that evaluates the way you drive, and alters the chemistry of the tire to better match your driving style.  The secret to reCharge, as Goodyear calls this process, is a special cartridge that rides inside the tire. It contains a liquefied biodegradable tire compound under pressure.
