Seems like a pretty good idea really, it just needs the little push called necessity to bring the technology along. One thing about it you get to have different looking wheels (if you so choose) every time you get new tires ha ha ha

Those are the ugliest things I've ever seen. I'll stick with what's not broken.

Ha ha RAF that reminds me of those green colored tracks I see on snowmobiles every so often looks kinda neat but weird or I guess out of place.

The tire companies talked about it for years, they need to either s*** or get off the pot.
Just thinking of 1/2 of the tire full of show or mud, I'll keep checking my old air ones each week.
