This technology isn't exactly new. I remember seeing an article in a SCCA rag in HS about them. That was over a decade ago.

I think these will get out of round pretty easily. Something you would definitely notice at higher speeds.

Snow and ice will definitely be no problem for these.

How long does the honey comb last before falling apart?

Put a mesh around the honey comb to keep dirt out

I saw an article about them in Tire Review awhile back.

If they can keep the cost reasonable,they will be a hit.

Do a google search for airless tires.
There are different designs, but they are all open like the one pictured.

Just laugh as you run through the spike strips they set out for you.

I'd like to welcome everyone to the Internet! These tire designs have been around well over a decade and been in use on skid steers for years.

I imagine Georgia clay would fill those holes up right fast.

I have looked into tires like that for our Bobcats. They are very expensive. Fixing flats is far cheaper despite the hassle.
Link Posted: 10/4/2014 10:36:48 AM EST
These have been around for 8-10 years

The are too expensive for cars. The have been mainly on heavy equipment.
