    This technology has been in the works for some time now. How will it migrate into the market when and if it's ever introduced?

    i wouldn't hold my breath for their availablility to consumers until they solve the biggest issue which is the vibration/noise/heat problem they have above 50mph (HowStuffWorks ) ...

    New Michelin Tires coming out soon

    Hello everyone!!

    Michelin has been researching for many years, trying to find an alternative to air tires.They might have found something that we can start using on consumer cars very soon. This Tire doesn't have side walls and requires no air pressure which means no blow outs and always having the right amount of stiffness to your tires.

    cheers........ now it is available for all of us.

    Thanks a lot.........
