Michelin to Launch Air-Less Tires Next Week [News]
posted November 15 2014 19:51.20 by Giorgos Lazaridis




We've seen such tires in the past used in space applications, where temperature changes are extreme (-150oC in shadow, +150oC under sunlight), and the closest point of repair is some 380.000 Km away... The Lunar Rover per se had airless tires:

Michelin announced that next week they will start producing airless tires in a dedicated factory in Piedmont, SC. Do not throw your pumps away though because the Tweel (the name of the airless tyre model) will not be available for automotive application. They aim first for the hard-working heavy machines. Enjoy the videos:
