Hi Guys, what do you think about the Michelin X TWEEL TURF - an alternative to tyres, a new interesting way or just a flash in the pan

Folks put those on their ATVs around here and seem to really like them,the Military also uses a version of this set up.

Are they expensive - and how long can they live?

It might be functional but pretty ugly.

I'm trying to figure out what's a "tyre"
That invention has been out for some years, not sure if it will ever catch on in anything more than off road applications.

Not sure what the price is..probably not cheap though..I read where they last 2-3 times as long as a regular tire because harder material is used.

some of the ones they make now have sidewalls to make them look more like a regular tire,I also read about an insert that was for a standard tire..fits in like a tube would but is honey combed.

I have seen the tracks before but couldn't figure out if the transmission had to be in reverse or drive to go forward. Looks like reverse to go forward. When the truck did the high speed run there appeared to be no up shifting. Be nice to have a set of them up here in a month or so.
