Tires of the future?
This is very cool, Bridgestone is testing small tires that are used on some tiny single seat cars in Japan. The tires don’t use air inside and are only 9-inch diameter. Rather than having air pressure to keep the tires inflated and support the car, this tire has little resin spokes.

The spokes radiate out from the tread inside the tire to offer support and cushion. No air inside means that the tires won’t puncture and the resin the tires are made from is recyclable. The spokes on the outside of the tire are made from a thermoplastic resin.

The tiny tires would need to be ramped up significantly in size to work for larger vehicles. Bridgestone will be evaluating the performance of the tires on cars before the production is ramped up. In the future you may never have to check your air pressure or change a flat again.
