Resilient Tech’s Non-Pneumatic Tire

By  | 

Here’s a tire in development for the Military’s High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV or Humvee) and probably shortly thereafter civilian use.

The reason it’s fkn brilliant is because it’s a non-pneumatic tire (NPT)!

In other words, it will never go flat, not even when shot at or hit by shrapnel from say, a roadside bomb. This groundbreaking product will safeguard U.S. military personnel by providing continuous mobility during hostile events.
