    What happens when one side of the wheel packs up with mud.
    Wouldn't that throw the wheel balance all to h*ll at high speeds?

    If it was loose mud or dirt you would think as it sped up it would be throw out. Or you could just spray it out.
    I can't find a price on them. Been out a while but haven't really been available for purchase. I'm sure when they do it will be $2k a tire.
    Must be like electric cars all the other competitors will bury it.

    Anybody watch "who killed the electric car" That was only one side of the story, but interesting. We all know who ever has the most money makes the decisions.

    The video shows desert type terrain, not heavy clay mud. Those wheels wouldn't be drivable if packed with mud or snow. Especially if left overnight to freeze.
