Michelin Rolls Out Airless, Puncture-Proof UPTIS Tires

Posted in Automotive

The latest development in car tire design comes by way of industry giant Michelin. The airless, puncture proof prototype tire is called UPTIS, for unique puncture-proof tire system. Designed for passenger vehicles, it eliminates the risk of flat tires and blow outs. The design has a second-hand benefit—by reducing the number of tires that need replacement, less material will end up in landfills as tire manufacturing moves towards a more sustainable future. Could be on roads as soon as 2024.
