Andy Meek on GM and Michelin’s plans for an airless tire:
GM and Michelin are working on a prototype tire design they unveiled this week which will start being tested on Chevy Bolts later this year — and, more importantly, is intended to eliminate the prospect of blowouts and flat tires once it’s put into use on production cars.
Sounds promising. When?
These tires are estimated to start going on to production vehicles in about five years, or as soon as 2024.
