MICHELIN & GENERAL MOTORS DEVELOPED A 3D PRINTED PUNCTURE PROOF TIRE PROTOTYPE

Michelin and General Motors (GM) unveiled a 3D printed prototype tire representing a new generation of airless wheel technology at the Movin’On Summit for sustainable mobility in Montreal. The tire’s name Uptis stands for “Unique Puncture-proof Tire System” and was designed for use in passenger vehicles.

Although this tire may roll the industry into the future, it looks like a regular old tire without the sidewalls. It also has treads in the middle and is completely airless.
