Getting a flat tire is one of the most annoying things that can happen to a driver. But for the military, it can be the difference amongst life and death. This Airless Tires – ingenious honeycomb are design by a Wisconsin engineering company.
They might be the key to a new airless tire that could keep army vehicles running faster and longer after an attack.
This honeycomb inspired tire design become known as the „Honeycomb Tire“, Airless Tires or the „Humvee Tire“.
The army wanted an alternative to the current Humvee ” run flat ” tires. Despite the name, the tires still need a minimal amount of air pressure to roll and can leave troops stranded after being shot or blown out.
With this airless tires, that’s all going to change. Beside from strength, the design allows shrapnel and high-caliber bullets to pass through the airless tire.
This is amazing, and i would love to get my hand on these tires.
