CHECK OUT THESE NEW TIRES and a Cowboy's Ten Commandments

Cowboy's Ten Commandments posted on the wall at Cross Trails Church in Fairlie , Texas : 
(1) Just one God. 
(2) Honor yer Ma & Pa. 
(3) No telling tales or gossipin'. 
(4) Git yourself to Saturday or Sunday meeting. 
(5) Put nothin' before God. 
(6) No foolin' around with another fellow's gal. 
(7) No killin'. 
(8) Watch yer mouth. 
(9) Don't take what ain't yers. 
(10) Don't be hankerin' for yer buddy's stuff. 

Y'all git all that? 



These tires are made in South Carolina , USA .
Radical new tire design by Michelin.
The next generation of tires. 
They had a pair at the Philadelphia car show.

Yes, those are 'spoke' like connections to the inner part of the tire from the outside tread 'wrap!' The next picture shows how odd it looks in motion....


 Makes you wonder how the ride feels doesn't it? 




These tires are airless and are scheduled to be out on the market very soon.
The bad news for law enforcement is that spike strips will not work on these.
Just think of the impac t on existing technology: 
A. no more air val ves...
B. no more air compressors at gas stations...
C. no more repair kits... 
D. no more flats... 
These are actual pictures taken in the South  Carolina plant of Michelin.
