The airless tires are not new to the automotive world and technology development is also very fast. Some well-known tire maker companies such as Bridgestone and Michelin have produced it and ready to be sold to the consumer.

Here are some airless tires in question:

1. Bridgestone Air-Free Concept Tire
Bridgestone Air-Free Concept Tire is the vehicle tire concept which enables us already do not have to bother to check whether the tire is less air or even to patch because this tire is airless.

The secret of airless tire is in the tire design and development of thermoplastic resins materials that can be recycled easily, this is important because the tire that use this technology will not have problems in recycling.
Unfortunately, this time the Bridgestone airless tire is only able to withstand a weight of 50 kg only, so Bridgestone's focus on the use of this tire on a small electric cars or other light vehicles. Now, we must be patient to wait for the use of this technology on the larger vehicles.

2. Michelin X Radial Tweel Airless Tire
Michelin is going to start producing airless tire, named Michelin X Radial Tweel Airless Tire. Certainty to produce a special airless tire with their announcement of a new plant in North America that will specifically produce airless tire.

Tweel of the combined two words namely Tire and Wheel (Tweel = Tire and Wheel) is actually combine both of these so if you want to buy this tire should be all the rim too because there may be not mounted on a regular rim.
The Tweel is currently aimed at commercial and agricultural vehicles. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/1FqzhAi)
A matter of used time of Tweel, the company claimed could be used 3 times longer than regular tire and also when there is damage, it can be replaced only the damaged parts only and does not need to be replaced the tires.
However Tweel also could not be enjoyed by the owner of the car because the first production focus of the tires was for the agriculture vehicles so do not be surprised at this time we see all pictures of the airless tire is mounted on the agricultural industry vehicles. So we also must be patient to wait for the use of this technology on our cars. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MICHELINTWEEL]
