Check out Michelin UPTIS new airless technology. The days of punctures, filling up with air and blowouts are OVER!
Although still in the prototype phase of development, the tyres could have significant implications for the future of motoring, particularly in terms of safety.

In fact, manufacturers say the tyres – which are made from resin-embedded fibreglass and an aluminium wheel – would need no maintenance at all.

Michelin predicts the improved reliability and the fact existing wheels can be fitted with new treads would eliminate the need for 200 million annual tyre replacements.
