Goodyear has unveiled a bizarre concept car tyre that is capable of regenerating its own tread. 

The reCharge tyre is designed to have a biodegradable tread and Goodyear claims it will be reinforced with fibres inspired by the ultra-strong spider silk.

Drivers would be able to recharge their tyres using a liquid capsule and inserting it into the centre of the wheel.
