Taking Air Out of the Tire Equation

Since 2005, developing a tire-wheel combo appropriately named the “Tweel.” With steel and rubber that form a strong and flexible structure, the Tweel possesses all the necessary qualities of regular tires but without the possibility of losing air.

Currently, Tweels are being used for skid steers (you know — those mini, one-person tractors that have the cage around the driver) and commercial lawnmowers, which encounter flat tires nearly once a week on average.

Even though tires on today’s cars are well constructed in terms of braking, cornering, and fuel efficiency, there are still innovations to be made.

So what makes more sense — Perfecting run-flat tires or eliminating a tire’s need for air altogether? Is this all just a bunch of hot air? Or will you be riding on airless tires in the near future?
