Jim Shanahan sent me this. I don't know where he got it from. Somewhere in America I guess, judging by the spelling.
HAVE YOU SEEN THESE TIRES? VERY INTERESTING STUFF.
RADICAL NEW TIRE DESIGN BY MICHELIN. THE NEXT GENERATION OF TYRES. THEY HAD A PAIR AT THE PHILADELPHIA CAR SHOW.
THESE TIRES ARE AIRLESS AND ARE SCHEDULED TO BE OUT ON THE MARKET VERY SOON.
THE BAD NEWS FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT IS THAT SPIKE STRIPS WILL NOT WORK ON THESE TIRES.
jUST THINK OF THE IMPACT ON EXISTING TECHNOLOGY:
A. NO MORE AIR VALVES...
B. NO MORE AIR COMPRESSORS AT GAS STATIONS...
C. NO MORE REPAIR KITS...
D. NO MORE FLATS... (well, I'll believe that when I see it)
THESE ARE ACTUAL PICTURES TAKEN AT THE SOUTH CAROLINA PLANT.
