Weird that they drastically change the figures from one paragraph to the next (1850x greater to 400x greater)

I don't think you'll see any eco nuts making a stink about this, the tire emissions are basically dirt

Weird that they also don't bother mentioning particulates generated by tires of ICE vehicles, or how that compares to the particulates by EV tires. If I didn't know better, I might think they are trying to push an agenda. But as we all know, they couldn't print it on the internet if it weren't true.

They did mention tires of ICE vehicles. Article says EVs tend to be heavier which would generate more particulates than ICE counterparts... Unless you pussy foot the gas and breaks + have regenerative breaking tech

They don't say how much particulate ICE vehicle tires generate as compared to the engine or compared to EV tires.

Probably don't want to betray how inconsistent the findings would be... An F250 Super Duty is going to have drastically different results than a Chevy Cavalier with an aluminum engine
