This kind of reminds me of Bridgestone’s air-free tire or the Michelin Tweel.
I already posted one video of a heavy duty tire exploding in slow motion, now here’s another video.
Robots are so awesome. Skip to 2:20 to see the robots do the hard work of fitting a rubber tire over a wheel/rim. It even inflates the tire automatically once it’s on. AMAZING.
This is scary. So the force of one of these tires exploding due to improper maintenance techniques will feel like being hit by a truck.
