Read about these a few years ago, and now we're finally close to being able to roll on airless tires!!Take that HWY 290!!! Just try to take out one of my tires again once I have these bad boys! HA
Polaris has begun deliveries of its MV850 flat-proof TerrainArmor tires to the U.S. Special Operations Forces, and they do plan to introduce a retail version soon!!
The tires can take a shot from a .50 caliber round without failing .. one was even driven on for over 1,000 miles off-road after it was punctured by a railroad spike.
Earlier this year, Polaris donated several vehicles to assist with relief efforts in the wake of the Moore tornado in Oklahoma, and says they performed perfectly while traversing the debris left by the storm.
