GM and Michelin will bring airless tires to passenger cars by

GM and Michelin have unveiled a prototype of Uptis (Unique Puncture-proof Tire System), a Michelin-made tire intended for passenger cars. The Uptis was created with a unique tire structure that is designed to never go flat or experience a blowout. This is accomplished through a composite rubber and a proprietary high-strength resin embedded fiberglass to create the airless wheel structure. This structure also reduces the raw material needed to produce the tire and requires virtually no maintenance whatsoever. GM plans to fit a fleet of Bolt EVs with the Uptis tires, which will go into testing later this year in Michigan.
