New See Through Michelin Tire With No Value Stems and No Air

Filed under: Featured Posts,The Major |

South CarolinaJanuary 22, 2012– The U.S. Military is seemingly always looking for a better technology, a better way for our troops. Announcing a new airless tire. I got a hold of some actual pictures in a South Carolina plant.

Wow, no value stem, no air, and I can see through it

They have been testing these for several years now. Resilient Tech was developing them for the military application.

Amazing new tires…………………….

Now that's a cool tough turck tire for the woods, or maybe the Upper Peninsula Mud Drags

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…

This design reminds me of the 1959 Movie featuring the Ben Hur Chariot

Michelin Tires… Absolutely SCARY looking… Look for ’em in August.

These tires are made in South Carolina , USA .


Radical new tire design by Michelin.

The next generation of tires.

Yes, those are ‘spoke’ like connections to the inner part of the tire from the outside tread ‘wrap!’

This picture shows how odd

Look a tire with virtually no rubber

it looks in motion over a bump…

This makes me wonder how the ride feels?

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.

These are actual pictures taken at the South Carolina plant of Michelin.

  3. Do you know what the price of these tire will cost for a Sedan Sided tires!
    Also are there any drawbacks such as speed performance, high speed turning on HWY’S. Snow conditions a chains, slippery road condition and black ice. Will the open like spooks required to to be kept free of roadside materials including road surface finishings, line painting on road.
    I’m sure there are several more questions to be ask about the tires and if the ratings are very good, considering that the cost maybe very high,
    The price is my focus point.

  5. Will they be able to tow things like boat trailers? Can they be used on boat trailers? Seems like the spokes would fill and hold a lot of mud if you drive on those type of roads. Will 4×4 vehicles be able to use thrm? I’m guessing they will if they have been tedted on military vehicles!
