Thanks to Mr. M G Anantharaman who firwarded this:
No more Fix-a-flat, no more air compressors, no more spare tires, no more auto jacks, no more tools rattling in the trunk. Will it reduce the price of cars? Will it reduce the cost of roadside service? Will some businesses go out of business? Coming soon! They have been testing these for several years now.Resilient Tech was developing them for the military.
MICHELIN WILL PUT THEM ON ALL OUR CARS SOON
Amazing new tires...Michelin Tires... Absolutely SCARY looking...
Look for 'em in August.
These tires are made in South Carolina, USA.
SEE THROUGH TIRES
Radical new tire design by Michelin.
The next generation of tires.
They had a pair at the Philadelphia car show.
Yes, those are 'spoke' like connections to the inner part of the tire from the outside tread 'wrap!' The next picture shows how odd it looks in motion...
Makes you wonder how the ride feels doesn't it?
These tires are airless and are scheduled to be out on the market very soon.
The bad news for law enforcement is that spike strips will not work on these.
Just think of the impact on existing technology:
A. No more air valves..B. No more air compressors at gas stations...
C. No more repair kits..
D. No more flats...
These are actual pictures taken at the South Carolina plant of Michelin.
THE FIRST MAJOR CHANGE IN TIRES SINCE BICYCLES
