WTF, can you bring up the old threads? is this tire just to show off the inner workings, or is it really something they're considering?

This design uses a different aspect ratio; lots of sidewall.

Granted, there's no sidewall on these test pics, but WTH.

These will find a market with the run-flat types...

those are new wheel designs that are actually being considered. they have flexible spokes like it says, I don;t remember what the purpose is but they are supose to be better for something.

This wheel tire combo alows the tire to hav a diffrent ride and turn feel. otherwise ride like a caddy, handle like a porshe, the best of both worlds.

Yeah, there would have to be a sidewall on there... if there weren't, this thing would be like a freakin' slinshot. If you drove on a gravel road it would be like a little kid throwing stones at everybody...
