    Do you make an all-terrain set? If they do, it would be awesome!

    I saw this on tv, cool concept but ugly as hell!

    I remember thinking isn't that like a "run-flat"

    They are kinda ugly, but it would be cool to never get flats.
    The run-flats are different b/c they actually had air in them. I guess they just had a special "gel" inside them that would "patch" any holes. I heard that once something happens to run-flats, then you can run them for about 50 miles before they're unusable...

    Somehow don't think they would work real well for rock crawling as you need the sidewall and for deep mud to float the vehicle over deeper holes. Definitely would be lighter in unsprung weight although I doubt the Armor All folks would be too excited.

    I suspect if this went into production a side wall of some sort would be added.

    But other than that the visual of some on being frozen place :laugh:

    All i had was a K&N cold air intake, brush guard, 25% tint on the rear windows and 35% in the front, and some bright ass PIAAs.
    I dont see those tires being very safe at higher speed
