    I am just wondering how this kind of tyres affect the drive.

    I mean you wouldnt wanna have cars skidding of the road on every corner.

    Especially here in Europe where we actually need cars that can do the corner

    and how long when kids realize this as well

    Otherwise yeah it does look interesting, but I sure would wait for say a year or two before considering them, after they get out.
    It takes this much for public to discover, for example, at 180km/h on a freeway, in the rain, driving on a "truck" lane where asphalt is not exactly level anymore, you go straight out

    And honestly trusting company selling the product to test the product or "independent instute" to do that for them is about as smart as asking the the guy at the fruit stand if the fruit is fresh

    Anyone remember Firestone incident.

    Probably quite good in a straight line, but I think there would be a hell of a lot of flex when you corner which would have to be sorted.

    Seen it before, but great idea

    Well it depends on the shape of those spokes. They may be sufficiently wide that they only flex in 1 direction

    Found another pic of the car turning, I'm sure they are being well tested for skids, high speed turning, and of course drag strip burn outs!

    Wow, I take it back then. He seems to be cornering at some speed there and they seem to be taking it well

    Yeah the spokes are like the width of the wheel, but thin the other way. They should only flex in one direction.
