    I'm too busy to look it up but I'm pretty sure there was a thread on the subject.

    Those are real. I posted a thread about them in automotive a long time ago.

    Guess I missed it. Do you know any of the tech info on them? Are they experimental or soon to be released? Interesting idea.
    thanks for posting the links.

    I imagine they would be difficult to keep in balance once the dirt and mud started to accumilate in between the "spokes"

    They are exposed to illustrate the technology.

    They will look like a conventional tire if produced.

    Experimental and Michelin believes them to be about 10 years off for commercial vehicle use. Segway is to be using them from what I hear but that is a long way from commercial automotive use.

    Fairly common design in the construction industry for skid steer loaders.

    Puncture proof, but heavy.
