Oh yeah the Tweels for a Benz

Michelin first showed theses tires in 2005 and I been like waiting and wanting em (just because) ever since I first seen them cause I want em on my Benz!

However it seems like that they are still light years away yet from actualy coming on the market.... can you see it? Your Benny with tires like these?

Oh shoot now I need another shot of somthing just to calm my nerves.....

Yeah yeah I know they are on an damn pile of shit audi in the pictures so don't give me no shit about that....

The wheels are called "Tweels" Just think about it .... never have a flat, never have to stop and put air in em and they look wild as hell! along with a large reduction in unsuspended weigth that = better handling of the car?

I think the concept is cool but the car looks like shit without the tire profile to fill the void around the rim. It looks cool that the car is floating but I think it looks kinda stupid with nothing but air around the rim. IMHO... I wonder if the tires would last longer as far as not having to worry about uneven wear from low or high preasure ect..

Do they balance and can they absorb impacts like a typical 15 inch tire and wheel? If so I hereby like them.
