Today I Watched... A Video About Airless Tires


What? Tires have always been filled with air. How is it even possible to make it without air? Michelin and General Motors has been working on this technology for years and have even implemented airless tires on tractors. Now, it's going to come to the car tire market soon. The airless tire could solve a big problem. Every year, there are over 200 million tires that are thrown away early because they are punctured. Not only this, many car companies have started to not include spare tires. So, if a person were to puncture one of their tires, then they would have nothing to replace it with. The airless tires can fix this problem and save energy from not having to manufacture as many tires.
