Funny how sometimes technology goes backwards LOL. Thats how they made tires in the early 1900s. Then they came up with pneumatic tires for safety and comfort. Now we are going back to solid rubber again. Whats next? Back to electric cars? :lol:

NASA was gong to use something like that on the Lunar Rover, but for some reason they stuck with the pnuematic tires for earth use.
