Road and Track did an article on it a few months again. Only a prototype they are playing with at this point.

As I understand it...... the "cops" are against it since the "spike strips" have no effect....

And how do they work against run flats?

And there are already various flat proof tires used on armored vehicles. Including one by Michelin that uses an inner core that allows the tire to run without air, although a bit lower.

Pretty poor reason to bar it from market. For a few hundred car chases a year (probably an over estimate) you'd prevent 100 million from having these on their car?

The articles I read pointed to som real serious advantages, including much better lateral road-holding and performance.
