Wire spring tires win R&D award

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on November 28th, 2010

These super strong wire tires are made of woven wire. There’s no air. Just layers and layers of springs designed to withstand the most extreme environments possible. NASA and Goodyear have teamed up to build these ultimate off-road tires.

They can withstand impacts and survive them much better than your average inflated rubber tire. Since the material is made of springs, it also contours itself according to the terrain, giving you excellent traction. Plus they look neat and shiny.

Snobootz offer a better grip on iceSnobootz work like a jacket that you wrap around your tires. They have metal cleats that can dig into ice, and the maker claims that they are easier to put on and remove than chains. The doughnut-shaped casing of laminated fabrics is smoother and lighter than chains, so once fitted, the rubber composite design is safe on your tires.

You’ll pay for the design though. They are available for $200 to $250 each. Then again if they keep you from freezing your butt off, they are well worth it.
