Very interesting.

I think they don't look too bad, just a tad..... well.... different. They have the "huge wheel, ultra low-profile tire" look but just taken to an extreme.

I just find it odd that we have come back to the solid rubber tire.

It will be intersting to see how they work in industrial applications as it will be thier main testing ground before they start slapping them on passenger cars.

Anyone remeber the Mercedes adjustable camber car from a major car show a couple of years ago. The one that would kick it's wheels and angled tires out to like 30 degrees of camber for corners and then stand up striaght when going straight ahead? That was another odd Michelin idea (egged on by those crazy germans at Mercedes).
