No Flat Tyres (Didn’t we already do that)

I recently got sent an interesting piece about some ‘new’ tyres Michelin have produced – they call it a Tweel.

The blurb is reproduced below, but the interesting thing is that these tyres have already been covered in our Influx car magazine and on this blog – over two years ago!

“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 (aka stingers) will not work on these tires.
This is what great R&D will do, and just think of the impact on existing technology:
A. no more air v r compressors at gas stations…
C. no more repair kits…
D. no more flats…”

OK, what happened to B?

Of course, any Adrianflux customers who read our original piece on the Tweel in issue 1 of influx, may already know that the big problem is excessive road noise over 50 mph and the wheel is not expected to be in production until at least 2015.
