Wouldn’t it be awesome to never have a flat tire, or blowout for that matter.

 

The Michelin Uptis Prototype is tested on a Chevrolet Bolt EV Wednesday, May 29, 2019, at the General Motors Milford Proving Ground in Milford, Michigan. GM intends to develop this airless wheel assembly with Michelin and aims to introduce it on passenger vehicles as early as 2024.

General Motors plans to give car buyers an airless tire on vehicles starting in 2024.

The automaker is teaming with Michelin and this week introduced the Michelin Uptis prototype at the Movin’ On Summit for sustainability in Montreal. Uptis stands for Unique Puncture-proof Tire System, GM said. This will awesome and they will last longer than normal tires. Tell me you wouldn’t be one of the first to buy.
