Re: Michelin Tweel

That's cool...do you remember the guy that was testing the articulated tires awhile back. They were made up of segments that articulated on the rim....so when you leaned over, the contact patch stayed perp to the road...

Been trying to find a link....but...

Re: Michelin Tweel

Cool idea; only drawback I see is not having the ability to adjust tire pressure. You would have to buy separate tweels for differing conditions.

And then there's this asshole...

Re: Michelin Tweel

Can you use them with spinners??


They unveiled them at the Detroit show but I guarantee that they did not drive them to the show. No new tire technology can tolerate the pot holes around that town.

There are some who call me ............................Tim

Didn't someone lose a Hyundai Pony in a pothole a few years back on I-94 around Dearborn?
