Michelin has a prototype of a new tire called the "Tweel". It is an airless see-through tire. It is the wave of the future -- the next generation of tires.
There is no air enclosure. It is made entirely of composites.
No more punctures or flat tires, or looking for an air hose at a gas station.
The new tires have spokes for a cushion. They are expected to hit the consumer market "soon". These photographs were taken at Michelin's plant in South Carolina.
