Michelin announces it will mass-produce the Tweel airless tire


Tweel airless tire


Michelin is the first company that will start mass-producing an airless radial tire, known as the Tweel. The Tweel can never go flat and never be punctured, and after talking about it for a decade Michelin is finally going to start making it in quantities. (Video)

Michelin has dedicated a new South Carolina factory to making the Tweel; a “tire/wheel” that uses flexible spindles where a conventional tire holds air. Michelin President Pete Selleck explains its significance and usage.
