kevin, i'm not an offroader but i'm wondering how good it will really be for offroad driving. aren't you guys constantly adjusting air pressures for different surfaces?

Yes, we do and that would be a problem. The open structure also would not lend itself to offroad work - can you imagine what would happen if the tweel filled with mud:-(

They would be awesome the tires would absorb what the struts and springs absorb, You would think that the ride would be very comfortable.

You are aware that these tires are only open for demostration purposes, right? It's only to show their contruction on the inside. If they were to go into production, they'd have sidewalls and would look just like any other tire out there...

It is very noisy, you can forget stereo or even your hot aftermarket exhaust, at least from the report I read.

maybe they can but some sort of current sensitive material in there and power it up so the stiffness can be changed instantly by sending electricity through it.

I wonder how well they would flex with the winter's cold months and the freeze/thaw cycle..


You can also count on these guys melting your credit card

or just burning a hold in your wallet.. :)
