Key statement: The present invention relates to a no-puncture bullet-proof tire, which can prevent a puncture, a tear or a rupture of a tire by a nail, a reinforcing bar piece, a steel plate piece, a bullet, or other various kinds of fragments, and can enable a vehicle to safely run at a high speed of about 100 kilometers or more per hour under a high temperature environment of about 60[degrees]C or more and a low temperature environment of about -60[degrees]C or less, by filling the inside of the tire with a mixture of silicon rubber and spherical EVA foam without an air pressure.
