Sub for more: | GREENVILLE, SC | The wheel has served mankind for eons, but now it has finally arrived in the 21st century. Since 2005 Michelin Tires has been working on a tire that doesn’t need air, and no, it’s not a rigid wagon wheel. Its a tire that has built in shock absorbers that will never become flat or blow out.
Its called the Tweel and it recently hit the market for industrial skid-steers.
In April of 2013 it earned the silver “Edison Award” given in the spirit of “persistence and excellence personified by Thomas Alva Edison,”
But the question on everyone’s mind now is, “when can I get one for my car?”
The buzz on many online forums and websites claim technical setbacks due to vibrations and noise at high speeds have kept it off the market, some speculate that Big Oil and Big Rubber may never let such a product reach consumers.
So I decided to call Michelin tire and see what they had to say about the matter.
Michelin’s Mary Ann Kotlarich revealed to me that prototypes had resolved the wind noise and vibration issue years ago, and that shes been working to correct the facts for some time now and revealed a different reason for this revolutionary product being kept off the roads.
She stated, “wind noise and vibration is not a fact withholding consumer use. The Department of Transportation would need to make changes in regulation before consumer use could be applied” citing current regulations that require air to be in tires on America’s Highways.
According to Michelin, “The introduction of passenger car and light truck applications of the Tweel is still years away, as further developments must meet Michelin’s demanding standards of safety and handling. However, no fundamental blocking points have been found and work continues in research and development.”
Further clarifying the high speed wind noise and vibration issue, John Webber writing for Grassroots Motorsports reported in the October 2012 article titled “The Tweel is For Reel,” “Early issues in regards to noise and high speed vibration were resolved in subsequent prototypes and current automotive Tweel prototypes have shown to be reliable and well behaved.”
Demonstrating their durability, Webber reported that, “Three highway driven vehicles successfully participated in the entire 2013 Hot Rod power Tour long distance road trip in June 2013.”
These images from the 2013 Hot Rod Power Tour give us a glimpse of the future or motoring in America. Zach Merrill, who works for Michelin, placed road-ready prototypes on his 1955 Morris Woodie and completed the Tour, as he says, “like riding on air”
At this point in time Michelin Tires is the only tire manufacturer with an airless tire on the commercial market and plans for a mass produced consumer model still years away.
So until the Department of Transportation is lobbied by the American consumer and Michelin meets it’s safety benchmarks we’ll all have to admire them on small construction vehicles, military humvees, and the occasional public display.

The tubeless sealing ring (TSR) is a product which enables the mounting of tubeless industrial tyres on standard industrial vehicle rims which, because of their construction, must normally be mounted with a tube and a flap.
The TSR consists of a rubber ring with an integrated tyre inflation valve. The rubber ring sits on the cylindrical part of the rim between the beads of the tyre, and ensures an airtight interface sealing the tyre chamber, without the use of a tube and flap.
Some of the advantages of fitting a TSR are that there is no sudden air loss upon puncture and vehicle downtime is minimised due to simpler and quicker mounting.
Learning how to repair or replace your own Commercial Truck Tire will 1. Give you a good work out, 2. Save you Some Money, 3. Can you help you in an Emergency, below are some tips.
