Michelin and GM are reinventing the wheel

The companies GM and Michelin are making an attempt to reinvent the wheel with airless tires. These tires aim to solve various inconveniences for drivers. They are projected to be out on the market by 2024.

They'd better change the design to cover the sides! No point in having compression gaps if they get stuffed with leaves and other gunk.

There is a reason why tubed tires are a thing. The airless ones offer no cushion for bumps, they’re also incredibly loud.

Make them break down twice as fast as radials so we have to buy more 👌

So many fudds that would rather keep replacing tires every year than try something new 😂😂 This technology can be made quieter, more shock resistant and 't'll get better with every iteration, like everything does.'Y'all probably still own box TVs and flip phones.
