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.
