Bullet Proof Tires
August 26th, 2009
by Survival Spot

Survivalists everywhere will be thrilled to hear that the future of tires is full of holes…in a good way. The new Honeycomb tire design, originally created at the University of Wisconsin for the U.S. Army, can survive explosions, gunfire, extreme terrain and even handles every day driving.

The Tweel
And for those of us that aren’t in the military, a consumer version of these tires will be available to you soon as Michelin has followed suite and created it’s own version of the tire for commercial and personal use. See how the “Tweel” from Michelin handles by watching the video below.

How would it handle though? There's always a "sales" bias to some articles, but until I find out how it deals with "J" turns, and "pit manuevers", I'll save my pennies.

Still, +1 on UBER FREAKIN' COOL!
