    I first saw this as a concept and prototype by Pirelli before the turn of the century, so the idea is over 22 to 25 years old and we are yet to see these tyres around other than in "Pie in the sky" articles....

    This is being used on equipment already. I see this on skidsteers pretty often, I think Michelin sell them?

    A concept more than 12 years old, at least by Michelin.

    The challenge is how to compensate for varying loads on the vehicle.

    Old concept.

    It's sort of becoming a yearly thing now.
