Michelin Plans To Roll Out(!) Airless Tires By 2024

These are several shots of the Uptis (Unique Puncture-proof Tire System) line of airless tires that Michelin and GM have teamed up to roll out on some consumer vehicles by 2024. The airless tire is supported by 3-D printed flexible spokes (but what about my bitchin' rims?!), can't go flat, and will allegedly last longer than normal tires (partly due to the punishment a lot of regular tires suffer from under or over-inflating), Plus (and by far most importantly), according to my most recent calculations *adds 'B00B5' three times on calculator* there won't even be any air left on earth to fill regular tires by 2024.

Keep going for a couple more shots.

Thanks to Marc B, who agrees they should just develop hovercars already and be done with it.
