As a tire it may be efficient, but overall I have to think that the open sides will cause an awful lot of drag at any speed at all.
Seems to me I recall them saying that they will cover the sides with some kind of sidewall, so you have to be concerned about the flexing at the corners of where things join up. Could be interesting for use on a F-1 car...............
