I haven't seen any for sale yet, but I have heard about them. They are made by Michelin. If you go to the Michelin website, they have a page for them. I can't remember which part of the site I found them on, but they are there.

It's a Jeep thing... You wouldn't understand!

They wont be for sale, prototype only for cars. Useable tires that only work on low speed applications.

Michelin is developing the same design tire for the military right now. Ran across that online the other day

Production models don't have an exposed honeycomb, they have walls like normal tires. The pics you see are just for show

I see em on skid steers all the time with gnarly tread on em. Doubt they are dot approved but neither is my right foot. They look cool however i would fear the honeycomb in mud. Ive often thought of skid steer tires, they can be had for cheap used and are literally TOUGHER than nails.
