New Tires!

Yes, those are 'spoke' like connection fins to the inner part of the tyre from the outside tread 'wrap!' The next picture shows how odd it looks in motion....
These tires are made in South Carolina , USA .
  
SEE THROUGH TYRES…
a radical new tyre design by Michelin. The next generation of tires. They had a pair at the Philadelphia car show. Thought I would share with you.

Makes you wonder how the ride feels doesn't it? Well it is fantastic in the extreme! 

These tyres are airless and are scheduled to be out on the market very soon.

The bad news for Police and other law enforcement is that stinger spikes will not work on these.

Just think of the impact on existing technology: 
A. no more air valves...
B. no more air compressors at Petrol stations...
C. no more repair kits... 
D. no more flat tires... 
E. Less expensive and more money in the drivers pocket…

These are actual pictures taken in the South Carolina plant of Michelin.

Will be fun trying to modify the handling characteristics of your vehicle by adjusting the tyre stiffness :D

This is not new already. However, it has handling and grip problems and is not likely to make it to actual acceptance and production. Ride comfort especially, is horrible.
