This Is A Great Tire For The Homestead...!
I'm impressed by the fact tht these tires are virtually carefree!
Imagine, having a set of these on your BOV or your day to day ride around the retreat. No more having to worry about air compressors, spares, flats, repair kits...all the fun stuff.
If these perform as intended, it would be a definite improvement over the tires we depend on now...don't you think?
I think that the ride could also help to increase gas milage, since the pressure is always the same! I don't know this for sure, but to me it only makes sense! You have to admit, they look pretty cool going down the road!
After looking at this unique design where the ribs replace the air chamber on regular tires, I really have to wonder how the ride feels.
I can see so many times where this design and this tire could really help to keep us from harms way, and assist in the need to get out of Dodge with very few stops or delays due to tire problems!
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 in the South Carolina plant of Michelin.
Now, my friends, let's get some coffee and sit outside for a bit...OK?
