Airless Tires

Ugly looking things...

What pros cons can you see in these?

I heard about it from another forum...he pointed out spike strips becoming useless...

what about the sidewall/support things, what kind of lifespan do they have?

those would be good in the construction industry like on a Bobcat or backhoe....since they run over sharp objects all the time...

The word on the street (here in Detroit) is that they will have side walls, the latest design that I don't have pictures of, looks like a standard tire, with that on the inside.......

Nice... that could be a great investment for a DD... I still like the idea of being able to change the tire pressure though under different circumstances. I want the CTIS or w/e it is (the thing that the real Hummers have)... that'd be freakin' sick.
