Sure looks promising? Are they looking for investors, this could really be ground breaking and lucrative?

I saw a media clip on those guys a few months back. Definite potential. They have prototypes now that are remarkable. They last as long, stronger, and cheaper. They still have to find ways to make the molds fit different model rims and sizes. Once that happens, they are going to be rich. I could see Firestone buying the recipe from them for a few mil.

Hundred of miles on a flat?!?! Definantly some revolutionary technology there. I wonder how those would hold up to high speeds (115+)? I don't care if I can get them in any colour I want though...Not that big of a deal to me.
