That is definately weird... I wonder if it saves on rotational/un-sprung weight? And possibly no sidewall flex under hard cornering either... I think they may actually have something to run with here.

X2 these were released years ago excessive road noise and ride stiffness make it so that they will likely never see production.

They would still make a good spare to have in the trunk. Even as limited use until this becomes a perfected science
