They had a pair at the Philadelphia car show.
What do you think?

I was at a trade show and Polaris had a set on an ATV (or maybe a UTV). We were talking with the guy and he said they were good except when they wear out and you need to purchase an entire tire/wheel assembly. They were supposedly working on a way to have new "tires" mounted by a dealer to save on costs. There was one other downside he mentioned, but I don't remember what it was.

I am told the the first tires will be R-4 for skid loaders, sold by a very limited number of dealers. Will be about 2 times the cost.

I've seen this or something like this on an email that was circulating around a few years ago. It's nothing new, the concept that is.

I would doubt that you can use those in the winter months even if it does have an aggressive thread design. The minute you get some snow/ice or anything else inside the spoke area, it will automatically give you an out of balance ride until you remove the foreign matter.
