WOW, we will be able to "check em out" come Aug. 2017.
No-flats, no more air compressors, no more spare tires, no more auto jacks, no more tools rattling in the trunk. Will it reduce the price of cars? Will it reduce the cost of roadside service? Will some businesses go out of business?
They have been testing these for several years now.
Resilient Tech was developing them for the military.
MICHELIN WILL PUT THEM ON ALL OUR CARS SOON
Amazing new tires... Michelin Tires... Absolutely SCARY looking...

Radical new tire design by Michelin. The next generation of tires.

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.
