the future of tires

airless tires, or non-pneumatic tires

http://gizmodo.com/bridgestones-futu...ady-1469598671




according to Bridgestone, they are still a ways off from putting these into production for consumer vehicles. i don't get it. these things have been around for a decade. they're already in use on construction equipment. why is it taking so long to put these on our vehicles? it will be even longer before these appear on motorcycles. i'm getting tired of replacing my rear tire every time i come within 100 yards of a nail. i want airless tires and hoverboards NOW!!

on a steel horse I ride

Do I get to wear neon air nikes while on the hoverboard?
