    yep saw these ages ago and think there a cool idea.

    But they obviously arent great as they havent caught on. But maybe the tractor market would be better as shown in that pic.

    So is that the finished product without the tyre walls? I thought they removed the tyre wall for illustration/demonstration purposes.

    You would think though after over 100 years of the pneumatic tyre they would have come up with something better by now.
