saw a video of this five years ago on a military humvee. i highly doubt this will become street legal being how solid rubber tires are illegal because spike strips do not work on them.

What about when they fill up with gravel and mud, they would just break apart.

Surely just filling a regular tire with a lightweight solid foam would make sure it never went flat

The problem with foam-filled tires is that they build up too much heat from constant, repeated deformation of the foam.

These are good for this application, but try going any amount of speed and trying to turn.

Snap snap flip.

I can deal with a flat tire and the 15 bucks hector charges for the plug.

What I can't deal with is the what this thing will cost. If it lasted forever without the treading going down... SOLD, otherwise, don't be lazy I mean how often do you get a flat tire?

High-speed chases would no longer end with stop sticks!

I can see how off-road and maybe military use could be plausible, but they have a long way to go before I ride them to work. But good luck, the idea is sound. I look forward to developments.

Michelin has been experimenting with these 'Tweels' for years now.

Factors have been holding them back, they have a louder road noise, get worse gas mileage, and have rougher handling.

Two issues that I see, highway speeds and longevity.

Well, they passed one test. Now, let's see how they do in the rest:

1. High speed
2. Cornering
3. Rolling resistance
4. Tread wear
5. Noise level
6. Riding comfort
7. Impact resistance
8. Cost

But wouldn't it be like a flat tire if some of those cores got broken?

The problem is that it acts as a partially-deflated tire would, which is what they do for offroading. Your gas mileage would go down the drain if you put these on your commuter.

Police associations are trying to get theses tires banned because spike strips won't stop them.

Might be nice for slow maneuvering as pictured and possibly on a 4x4 in the snow. But I wouldn't want to put those on an M3 and go around a corner.
