Michelin to Prototype Advanced Airless Tyres

by | 7 Jun 2019 | News

If you’ve been that person struggling to change a flat tyre on the roadside, this one is for you.

Michelin are currently trialling a new prototype advance puncture-proof tyre which is made with a form of fibreglass and aluminium. The UPTIS (Unique Puncture-Proof Tyre System) is jointly being developed with General Motors, and both companies state that the tyre could be available on the road within the next 5 years. Tougher than conventional tyres, this new technology is designed to avoid dangerous blowouts and a minimal friction also aims to improve fuel economy. They are also cheaper and last longer than current conventional inflated tyres.

In the meantime, if you are a customer in Neath or Port Talbot, pop in for great deals on cheap tyres.
