Non-Pneumatic Tire

Thu Mar 07, 2013 9:36 am

I am looking forward to the price coming down and be made available for light trucks and cars.

Really cool idea.

I read the same article yesterday, seems to have endless upside. Let's see what they cost though.

I read several months ago that Michelien was planning on having them on the market by late this summer. Haven't heard much about them since.

It's not how many breaths you have taken but how many times it has been taken away!

Has anyone noticed common sense isn't very common anymore.

One of the more interesting un-planned benefits to me is the fact that they are quieter than a traditional tire, that isn't something I would have thought would happen.

I did hear that some "projected" pricing was about $900 a tire, at that price it is cost prohibitive for most of us, but with most technology the longer it is around the more the price comes down. I would like a set on my truck like now! But not for 900 each.

I would be curious about their load bearing abilities, particularly for a 3/4ton truck used to pull a trailer. But I can assure you that I won't find out till they are at least competitively priced with pneumatic tires.

A limit on the strap is nice, but the kill has nothing to do with tradition.
