lol your right they ARE ugly, and I figure they would need the sidewalls on the final tire, I mean they would suck in the mud or the snow, throw em way of balance. but it was so interesting i had to share it.

I they produce it I think they would add side walls. Another artical I read said the ribs chould last the life of the car so you would just retread it. But there are no plans for production.

Ah, but I wonder how they perform under acceleration. If they can keep more tread on the ground than an air filled tire, I'll bet the drag racing boys will be clamoring for production. Ugly or not, if they get you there faster.....

Yeah, if put on the market, I bet they would put a sidewall on them.

But what about the wheels they go on, and the tooling to mount them, I bet thats where the big money will be for them, cause you know it will be expensive, and if they're the only company doing the tires.......

I bet they would be a pain in the other side to mount/dismount.

My guess is it would be an OME application and made to the rim. As said the ribs are life time. So when you need new tires you have them retreaded.
I thing though that is part of the consideration of not planning to market them, who wants to wait a few days for tires to be redone?

Yeah, waiting on a retread would suck.

I can remember how ugly the '57 cars looked to me, mainly because of those little 14 inch wheels. Took a long while to get used to them.

That is great! Perfect tire for those that are too lazy to properly maintain their tire pressures! Also, it makes sidwall blow-outs a thing of the past. Goodbye to Road Hazzard warrantees
