Small sized airless tires have existed for years, but now airless technology is starting to grow up with the release of the Michelin X Tweel line. The X Tweel is an airless radial tire that is currently being released for skid steer loaders, zero turn mowers, and other industrial applications. So, why are we so excited? The technology that is being tested in industry brings hope that airless tires are just around the corner for passenger cars, too. Airless technology reduces maintenance costs and virtually eliminates flat tires.
Imagine never needing to worry if your tires are over inflated or under inflated as the temperature changes. The technology promises to improve fuel efficiency worldwide as under inflated tires become a thing of the past.
