    I'm down with that. Cost?

    NM, saw that it wasn't announced yet. Liked this part:

    Engineers shot test tires with 50-caliber rounds from an AK-47 and then subjected them to 5,000 hours of off-roading. On another outing that involved crossing a train tracks, a rail spike punctured the tread band of an NPT, but the rider kept going on it for more than 1,000 miles.

    Might come in handy someday with the Raptor. You know, when the zombies come.

    Our trucks are way to heavy for that type of wheel construction

    I think Birdman may be one.

    The concept isn't that detailed. If I remember correctly the biggest issue was stability and longevity? Only for slow speeds.

    great idea but the versatility of airing up and down is a much better option for us IMO than something like this... atv's and stuff go right ahead that would be perfect!
