This technology has been around for awhile. It always seems to be a few years away. I guess we'll see if it actually works.

Excellent vid, he covered all the bullet points, but I first saw these tires 20+ years ago being tested on military vehicles.  I wonder why R&D (etc., etc..) is taking so long. What's the hold up?

Not having spares/jacks in the vehicles I've purchased since 2007, dealing with CRAPPY run-flat harsh rides and periodically repairing "slow leaks" ....

Trust me, I'm ready for these tires!!

-And of course, sidewalls are a must. Can you imagine the "balancing issue disasters"  that would certainly arise from this "open"  design?
