Yeah those tires have been tested on vehicles as early as 2004. The reason for them not being used yet? Two reasons one I had hoped they would had resolved by now. The top speed these can be used before the tread (which wears much faster) is useless and the second being the cost of course. Will be nice when they get the first part figured out. Adoption has yet to catch on and appears to be failing this go round.

Ya somethings are just to good to be true.
Why can't they use this technology in tires today...instead of air full it up with this honey comb system.
Oh that would mean no more flats or blow-outs, which in turn will lesson tire sales.
If it wasn't for greed wonder how advance the world would be.

I would also imagine that if something were to get stuck in the tire it would change to stability of the system to go over obstacles like speed bumps. And it looked like the more speed it had the more bounce there was to it.
