TeddyRooseveltsMustache: Uuuuh, I think I'll stick with the Bridgestones, thanks.
dejavoodoo64: Do you have car or truck tires?
StopLurkListen: I'm just a layman here but ... isn't this more of a "wheel" technology than a "tire" technology?
Death Eats a Cracker: Oh cool! More expensive tires that will still wear out at 30,000 miles.
Girion47: Death Eats a Cracker: Oh cool! More expensive tires that will still wear out at 30,000 miles.My Dunlops have lasted me 31K miles so far, and I haven't been easy on them. There's no cracking and the tread is still almost as thick as new.LinkAnd they're rated for my max speed of 145.
Honest Bender: Those mag lev tires seem like a good idea until you put some lateral force on your car. Say, like going through a turn... Bye bye tire!That tilty tire seems like a good idea until something like grit sticks the tires in a tilted orientation. I didn't want to drive in a straight line anyway...I didn't really understand what the concept was behind the tire with the LED's on the side. Maximum traction! Ok, sure. But how?The off-road tire was nice, but that's a lot of moving parts = expensive.
dennysgod: I don't see those plow through 8" of snow at 6am.
If a car can maglev tires, why not just let the car maglev off the road, or better, let the road maglev car?

While Hankook is masturbating it's graphics, Michelin is working on "tweels"
Loki009: I have always been a Continental fan myself, but without actually doing research I have a bad feeling about how they are doing as a company. This winter I had to replace a snow tire i bought last winter (ExtremeWinterContact) and everyone was out of stock on the tire and a few places said they cut back on manufacturing this year and that is why./Conti ExtremeContact DW in the summer//Conti ExtremeWinterContact in the winter///Quite pleased with both

Captain_Ballbeard: WTF is a Hankook? Is this weird Korean bastardization of Hancock?
