    Would it not be great to take a atv trip and not have to worry about getting a flat? Seems like someone always has a major flat every time we go atv riding... Well good news. Those days are coming to a close. As companies are currently working to reinvent the tire. This air-less atv tire can handle a 50cal gun shot and keep on rolling. There are several companies making them. Michelin, Bridgestone, and Yokohama are a few designing a flat proof tire...
    Keep in mind that Flat proof ATV tires are still years away for the normal buyer. But for now this is just a tease of what is in the works.

    these would be cool to have. Never have a flat again. But they need side covers to keep the mud out of.the honeycomb.

    The ones without side walls would be a trip if you load up the bottoms with weight, you might be able to hope down the bunny trail.

    Yeah my old boss has some on his skid steer they save him a lot of money because of the constant flats he was getting , they where very expensive to begin with because they use a different rim but after that the replacements are a little bit more than the regular tires if I am correct
