What Michelin touts as the next generation of motor vehicle tires was on display at the Philadelphia Car Show recently and causing quite a buzz. No air, no flats, no repair kits, and no stopping them either, here are some pictures.
From an engineering perspective, they are quite remarkable. A band around the outer skin forms the tread surface, supported by an inner deformable wheel and outer flexible spokes.
Now, if only cars could be designed so well.
The new tire design can "curb" the wheel with virtually no injury to the wheel itself, as the flexible spokes give way to the curb pressure.
