That is really bizarre! I could not see it working with real world obstacles without the sidewalls being enclosed, though. Cool stuff none-the-less. They could call them "webial" tires! No, weally!!! :D

i'd seen somthing like this before, its very neat. i like it.

the cost difference doesnt really outweigh the performance advantages, if there even are any.


my only thing is, that they will need to seal the tires off on the sides because if mud or rocks get inside it will throw the balance of the tire off, but thats not a big deal probably.

We had a post about these a while back, its an interesting technology. I don't know how the ride or handling would compare, but I'd be at least willing to give them a try if they have a sidewall :)

Oh and BTW, spieldawg, your sig a little big, check the TOS for the rules on it and fix it please.

Not sure I would trust them. I mean i know tires are filled with all air but I like the security of knowing a bird or something won't nest in it...

A bird nesting in it. That's funny.

Or a squirrel chewing on the edge. Definately need to close the side walls somehow.

My issue is that for all this run-flat and no-air stuff, there is nothing which replaces the need for a spare.

I see this tire as an attempt to solve problems that don't exist.

only nice thing is that you dont have to worry about a flat.

Only if there's enough tire left to run on. I've had a tire shred on me, and if I wouldn't have possessed a spare, I would have been stuck 150 miles from home.

No. The PAX system is a conventional pneumatic tire in that it holds air, but uses a very reinforced sidewall to keep it from collapsing if the tire loses air (and a slightly different wheel that keeps the bead from popping off). The tire can be removed from the wheel and replaced when necessary.

The Tweel system (as I understand it) does not hold air and the wheel and "tire" is one complete unit. When it becomes necessary to replace it, you must replace both the wheel and the "tire."
