QUANTICO, VA - SEPTEMBER 7: In this handout image provided by the U.S. Navy, the Ultra Armored Patrol (ULTRA AP) Vehicle is shown at the Marine Corps Air Facility September 7, 2005 in Quantico, Virginia. The diesel powered concept vehicle utilizes the chassis of a Ford F-350 truck as well as NASCAR engineering to take advantage of commercially available safety features. Developed by the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) and funded by the Office of Naval Research (ONR), the vehicle is still being evaluated. (Photo by John F. Williams/U.S. Navy via Getty Images)

Alright, this may be a dumb question, I don't know.

I've always wondered, what happens when rounds start hitting tires?  Both on these armored vehicles and humvees out in the field?  What type of tires are they and how well do they deal with a bullet?

I mean from the looks of it, those things are fully exposed.
