Order Reprints

Airless tires have been on the scene for several years now. We are now seeing the beginning of commercial applications for airless tires, and there’s no telling where it could lead.

Could they lead to tires and wheels that fold up for storage and transport? They sure could. And that could lead to entire vehicles that fold up for storage and transport.

A product called the “Morph Wheel” might be the first step in the progression. To learn what the Morph Wheel can do, and to find out about some of the airless tires that have been developed, read Modern Tire Dealer Senior Editor Bob Bissler’s latest blog, Could airless tires lead to fold-up cars?

Do you think your business will one day sell tires that fold-up? Read the blog and let us know what you think by leaving a comment.
