This question already has an answer here:

LEGO is the No.1 tire maker in the world by number of unit. It produce the same number of tires in a year as both Michelin & Bridgestone together, the 2 biggest tire manufacturers. A "real" vehicle tire is made of a mix of Natural Rubber (coming from a tree: Hevea Brasiliensis) and Synthetic Rubber (coming from oil). Is this the same for the LEGO tire or is it only Synthetic rubber that is used?

    @chicks Also, the bands aren't made of the same rubber as the tires nowadays, so the answers aren't applicable. – Caleb Woodman Sep 2 '16 at 1:44
  • @CalebWoodman The (your) accepted answer from 5 July this year states "Tires and elastic materials found in some LEGO sets are manufactured from Styrene-Butadiene Styrene (SBS)"? – Zhaph - Ben Duguid Sep 2 '16 at 16:46
