    Michelin Tires

    Radical New Tire design by Michelin
    Look, Ma, No air! Check these out.
    They had a set at the Philadelphia car show.
    These tires are airless and are scheduled to be out soon.
    This is what great R&D will do and just think of the impact on existing technology:

    .. no more air valves
    .. no more air compressors

    Even though it fires seperately, the Harley uses a single journal as well.
