He nick named the gun Reggie.

Michelin worked on those or a parralel project for street tires. they were pretty darn cool. rubber tread on a urethane core.

Been at least 6-7 years since I first saw pictures of the tweel. Cool concept, I hope they get the bugs worked out.

I remember about 20yrs ago seeing an airless spare tire on the tv show "Beyond Tomorrow".
I thought it was a cool concept.
It's interesting to see other manufacturers are looking into it further.

NY Times article from June 17, 1987 talking about Uniroyals airless spare.
