Michelin’s airless radial tire might be a look into the rubber of tomorrow.
As we have said many times, agricultural machinery isn’t our specialty here at GT Speed, however, engineering is always connected, and developments in one field could inspire innovations in another. We hope this is the case for Michelin’s new invention.
Adequately dubbed the Tweel, a portmanteau of tire and wheel, this circular contraption has been designed for use in agricultural machinery, with emphasis on reliability without compromising grip in muddy and slippery surfaces.
While the concept itself has been seen before, it would seem quite well suited for this application.
