Think that they would not last very long before they started to fly apart.Tires around here tend to start dry rotting after only a couple of years.I would think you could only get around 5 years out of them before they would start to crack and fall apart rite around the hub.

It seems like the rim/wheel combo would be lighter than the traditional set up. Lighter = better mileage. And it would use less rubber. Is the tire skin replaceable, or is it molded to the composite rim? It must be replaceable?

I like it.

I'm trying to figure out what's a "tyre"   :poke:  :poke:    :rolling:

 

 

That invention has been out for some years, not sure if it will ever catch on in anything more than off road applications.

Thanks for the notification, I wasn't sure tire or tyre - school's out a long long time, wed try to learn Oxford english  and at work I only speak german... But it's good to be in an american forum, time after time youll remember the words again :rolling:

I'm just pulling your leg, I know both spellings are actually correct. :thumbs:
