new tire design

I think they might come into style eventually, in a couple years maybe, if they can be made for a reasonable price and are marketed right. The correct marketing would probably be an emphasis on safety and fuel economy. People go nuts for either.


I don't know how well they'll work for an off-road application. With a pneumatic tire you have a very important feature, which the tweel doesn't, in that the size of the contact patch is 'adjustable'. Yes, you can see them flexing the 'sidewalls' like mad in the pictures, but that doesn't mean they're going to provide flotation in sand while still allowing you to get acceptable tread life out of them on the highway.
