Heat can be transfered from one place to another place by means of conduction,convection and radiation.When car moves on the road ,it comes in contact with road surface.So heat generated by friction between road and tyre. So heat transferd to sorrounding and some heat come in contact with tyre.So heat get trasfered to tyre not as much because rubber is bad conductor of heat.So heat trasfer to tyre by conduction and radiation.
