Michelin and GM’s airless tires for passenger cars to launch within next five years

Tierr@_de_N@die: A tyre able to run without any flatting or blowout risks? Michelin and GM think so, and the tyre is called "uptis".

These type of tires are normally made for military, slow-moving, and off-road vehicles, but GM and Michelin have unveiled a version designed for passenger cars. Michelin’s Unique Puncture-proof Tire System, or Uptis, was recently presented at the Movin’On Summit for sustainable mobility, and will undergo real-world testing on a fleet of Chevrolet Bolt EVs later this year.
