Just seen this, thought I would pass it on.......:worms:






Something new for the New Year - New Michelin Tires



































Amazing new tires.........................










Michelin Tires... Absolutely SCARY looking... Look for 'em in August.




These tires are made in South Carolina , USA .




SEE THROUGH TIRES




Radical new tire design by Michelin.




The next generation of tires.




They had a pair at the Philadelphia car show.









Yes, those are 'spoke' like connections to the inner part of the tire from the outside tread 'wrap!' The next picture shows how odd it looks in motion...









Makes you wonder how the ride feels doesn't it?
























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 at the South Carolina plant of Michelin.

Not those in the link though

I think it was Michelin, did a full bronze look one ages ago with nice double spokes (this isn't a new concept!)
And i liked the idea !
