New Tires

  1. Got this in an email recently.
    Hope it's in the right section:

  2. Been hearing/reading about these for a few years now, and they've been "scheduled to be out on the market very soon" for all that time.

    Wonder if they mean it this time?
  3. Old news.

    Sounds like a good product but they can surely make the side walls solid, they look damn ugly like they are now.
  4. Last I read about them they had issues with the inner struts overheating and failing when used for extended periods.

    I'd dare say that the open side-walls are absolutely essential to prevent the overheating issues.

    Edit: Link here. Been around in the public eye since early 2005. Otherwise known as a "Tweel".
  5. Having solid walls would take away from the suspension effect that they indicate in FLUX's link.

    Thanks for the link.
