These Awesome Airless Tires by Michelin Will Never Go Flat

Such a total badass!

No matter how cautious a driver you may be, you will surely experience having a flat tire sooner or later – and it can surely be a hassle, especially if you’ve never changed a flat tire before.

Actually, even if you know how to change tires, the process isn’t easy and can be potentially time-consuming. Your best bet, of course, is to get roadside assistance or drive to a service center for repair.

Looking at this tire technology by Michelin, we can’t help but wish this becomes available for cars soon.

The Michelin X Tweel Turf is an airless radial tire “completely eliminates” flat tires.

Called the Michelin X Tweel Turf, this badass airless radial tire “completely eliminates” flat tires. The catch here, however, is that they are “available exclusively” on John Deere ZTrak 900 B, M, R Series mowers as of the moment.

As the video tells us, this airless tire requires no maintenance so its really awesome. According to Michelin’s official website:

“Michelin X Tweel Turf is one single unit, replacing the current tire/wheel/valve assembly. Once they are bolted on, there is no air pressure to maintain, and the common problem of unseated beads is completely eliminated.”

As of the moment, these awesome tires are “available exclusively” for Jon Deere ZTrak mowers.

The website also mentions that this tire technology “has a consistent hub height which ensures the mower deck produces an even cut, while the full-width poly-resin spokes provide excellent lateral stability for outstanding side hill performance.”

Needless to say, I’m really, really impressed. I’m saying though that it would be a shame if this kind of tech were only available for mowers.

Go check out the Michelin website if you want more information about the X Tweel Turf.

Mikael Kjellman, a Swedish design engineer and inventor of PodRide took his inspiration from both a bicycle and car combined or a "bike car". This futuristic velomobile may not be as big as the typical vehicles that we have today but some of its features are car-like. The same four wheeled ride, sitting position, seat height and size that resembles small cars.

How One of World’s Largest Lakes Turned Into A Vast Man-Made Desert

This show’s that man’s actions can greatly affect the environment.

This vast desert with old ships and fishing boats seem like a set from a movie, but it’s actually real. Interestingly, the Aral Sea in Central Asia was once a huge lake – the fourth largest in the world - that has shrunken in size, leaving the place barren and dry.

The then-26,000-square mile area served as a border between Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan. But starting in the 1960s, the place dried up when rivers that supply its waters were diverted elsewhere.

Old ships and abandoned fishing boats rest on the desert plains...
