This has been posted several times, but still... thanks.
I guess I'm lost as to this spare tire "issue". I haven't had a spare tire in a new car since 2007 at least. Most people never check their spare tire and if/when they need it it's usually underinflated anyway.
For those that feel they need to haul around a tire, I guess this becomes a good solution. For people like me who drive in snow this won't work in its current form, and besides I have no need / desire to haul around a spare.
Sorry, I haven’t been on the forum much lately, I just drive our Bolt like an ICE now. The novelty has worn off & it is now just one of the fleet, turning 40K after 11 months.
I had not ever heard of this new airless tire, my experience is with wheel barrow tires!
I have had very good experiences with the spare tires supplied with our Japanese cars. In fact, I just junked a 2000 Corolla, (370,000km) & the spare had never been used, but was still at service pressure. My Sienna spare has also never really lost pressure, despite being exposed under the rear of the van for over a decade.
