New concept tyres... Tweels
What's a future car without a future tire? Well, Michelin's got us covered with a combination wheel and tire that doesn't use air, making it impossible to go flat. The "Tweel" uses flexible polyurethane spokes and promises to last two to three times longer than traditional radial tires, and when it does wear out it can simply be retreaded.
There is one potential drawback, however; it's not clear whether they'll be able to be chrome-plated or not.
Here's a link for more readup...

I think this is an excellent concept and might not really be too far from being OE!!! Will kill the alloy and conventional tyre market...
A thread on this I think is already on the forum ...anyways, another great product by the french.

I believe this topic has been discussed before...looks like the car ahs been "Hi-Jacked"!!
Even for all its cons I would still prefer the wheels to the 'Tweels'
