Hi, how can I calculate the carbon footprint of a standard car tyre? I am looking for the method in openLCA or the result. Thank you.

Piotrowska et al, 2019 especially in figures 5 and 9 describes the impact of a car tire in eco-indicator points across various impact categories. Table 12 has GHG emissions in kg_CO2_eq by life-stage of the tire.

Dong et al, 2021 in the intro determines "550 kg CO2 eq to 840 kg CO2 eq per car tire".
