Hi All,

I have actually done a bit of research on theses types of tyres as part of the work I do,

Essentially there are two types, both are still developmental in productions, the initial concept is sound however they still have to perfect it, the first ones only lasted 1000 km and made noise when any speed over 20 km/h was obtained, The other ones were better in noise however could not sustain agility testing due to failures. Give it a few years and they will be available

The Checker Plate King, at least it does not rust

I'm not sure how good they would be once some one had fired
a few rounds through them as it seems like every  hexagon is important to
the integrety of the whole tyre, maybe they plan to make kevlar (or something) sidewalls
to reduce possible damage

Interesting pic MD.

Which one are you? It's a fairly old pic, so I'll be generous and guess that you're the young bloke on the left with the pants tucked into his socks  ;)  :D

Pneumatic tyres didn't become a realistic proposition until the early 1900s, but wheels have been around a lot longer than that so lots of different types of airless tyres or resilient wheels were used before rubber.

This metal one doesn't look much different from the plastic one, but is 100 years older.

Driving a Moke with a hardtop is like having a shower in a raincoat.

Over a hundred years or so trying to improve the pneumatics and now for formula one they are purposefully making the tyres go off.

but sometimes the tyres don't matter
