Yes, it’s true! Michelin and GM are working together on a puncture proof tire.
The two companies have rolled out a new airless wheel prototype to replace traditional tires that are filled with air and prone to puncturing.
GM said the tire is environmentally friendly because it uses fewer raw materials. And because the tires last longer than traditional ones, GM and Michelin’s new invention could reduce the number of tires people throw away. Michelin said that 200 million tires are thrown out every year because of damage, such as blowouts and irregular wear caused by improper tire pressure.
