Amazing airless new Michelin tires

Well, they look like shit but it is a cool concept. I've seen this design on Bobcats before but not on cars. The only problem that I see with the design is that god forbid you get something in between the holes and it will throw the wheel out of ballance, even a little stone!

Yes, he does have better pictures. About the how the tire is attached, I dont know. In some pictures it has a typical wheel, very small in size, almost BBS-ish. However, in that one photo is has a rubber wheel built into the tire.



EDIT: Heres the picture im talking about:

the tire have no side wall for the purposes of demonstration - i'm sure there will be a sidewall on the tire once it is released

If these tires were on a Hyundai, they would seem fine because it is a light car, but what if they were on a heavy car like the Mercedes S class. The tires would look as if they had "Little Air" (if you know what I mean).

How would they make these tires for different car weights?

Do they make specific tires for different car weights?
