Default Airless Tyres--The next generation of Tires

Just received a forward mail from my friend.Mods I dont know whether this is discussed here,if yes please do the needfull.

The mail read like this

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


They had a pair at the
�Philadelphia car show.

These tires are airless and are scheduled to be out on the market
very soon.


The bad news for law enforcement is that spike strips will not work
on these tires.


This is what great R&D will do, and just think of the impact on
existing technology:�


A. no more air valves...
B. no more air compressors at gas stations...
C. no more repair kits...
D. no more flats...


SCAN DOWN & SEE

These are actual pictures taken in the South Carolina plant of Michelin.�

Very old news.
I think it has been posted earlier too (I cannot post links from my phone).
Edit: just check the bottom to see many links leading to those threads. Please search before posting!
