South Carolina – January 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.
They have been testing these for several years now. Resilient Tech was developing them for the military application.
Amazing new tires…………………….
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…
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.
Yes, those are ‘spoke’ like connections to the inner part of the tire from the outside tread ‘wrap!’
This picture shows how odd 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.
