Michelin Lets The Air Out of Tires

Here’s another wheel innovation, this time from Michelin. These look so cool and so is their name, Michelin have dubbed these babys “tweels”. Apparently trials of early versions of the Tweel have been very successful on an Audi A4, but don’t expect to see them soon, the following quote was pulled from the press release:

“The Tweel automotive application, as demonstrated on the Audi, is definitely a concept, a stretch application with strong future potential,” said Gettys. “Our concentration is to enter the market with lower-speed, lower-weight Tweel applications. What we learn from our early successes will be applied to Tweel fitments for passenger cars and beyond.”
