MICHELIN ACORUS Reinventing the Wheel – BENDS BUT DOES NOT BREAK

How It’s Made Wheels and Tires. MAXION Flexible Wheel with MICHELIN ACORUS Technology Reinventing the wheel – Bends but does not break

Factory Design. Innovation has always been part of Michelin’s genetic code – driving mobility and tyre developments for more than 100 years. Now with MICHELIN ACORUS Technology, in partnership with Maxion Wheels, Michelin is reinventing the wheel to help eliminate road-based damage to tyres and rims.

Michelin How to make flexible a wheels. The patented new technology, developed by Michelin and Maxion Wheels for the passenger car wheel market, incorporates two flexible rubber flanges mounted on a special wheel body to create a flexible wheel that improves the ride and comfort and also absorbs impacts from potholes and kerbs. The new wheel is compatible with all tyres on the market and comprises an alloy rim – which is narrower than normal, two rubber flanges and an optional cosmetic insert to protect the alloy wheel.

In tests with a 285/30R21 tyre driven through a pothole*, the standard rim version punctured the tyre at 28kph whereas the Flexible Wheel with the MICHELIN ACORUS Technology did not puncture, or sustain damage at any speed.

0:10 I think your tire’s a little low.

ignant esports says:

what happens if you hit a nail?

Charles Hines says:

We could use this in Pittsburgh. Some of the streets there are atrocious. Then some of them are very steep also.

Fredo Corleone says:

There are better options…

GommeBlog.it: Car & Performance says:

Like this new Technology ? Are There potholes and kerbs in your city?

MrTiti says:

why dont you get this extra cushion of rubber by using one inch smaller rims?

Adi Adrian says:

Lol, the funniest part in this video is that they all spell MICHELIN different.

dalriada842 says:

I wonder how well these tyres will retain their pressure over time. There are already tyre pressure monitoring systems fitted in a lot of new cars. I wonder if the next step will be compressor systems to maintain optimum tyre pressures in what might turn out to be a leaky wheel!

GraveUypo says:

exactly the same as using smaller wheels with larger tire sidewalls. this is retarded.

Dimitri Loginowski says:

they definitely nailed the “douche look” with the driver lol.

Ovi Ovidiu says:

I got a 15 ” wheel. Got plenty of rubber on sideways.

Serge Smith says:

I run a tire store and this low pro stuff sucks any way! I would love to punch the shit that came out with them!!

NPC #1141441 says:

that’s awesome

Tetraden says:

Let’s talk about cornering behaviour…

Neil Ross says:

I can guarantee that a tractor wheel has never suffered from this problem. Put tractor tyres on all cars. Problem solved and no need to fix potholes. You’re welcome.

Dr. KTM says:

y u cant make the rubber area too big and the alloy small

weaktech says:

yet another awesome wheel tech that stupid tyre monkeys will not know how to fit and therefore hate….

shinobi says:

The idea is great but
1- how much does it cost?
2- how do they perform in high speed?
3- how do the perform in the corners?
4- how long does a single tire lasts?

NG Platinum says:

this is amazing

Adi Adrian says:

Those tires are more expensive than my whole car

DataWaveTaGo says:

Hover Cars do it better.

RE CA says:

Take a look at 2:00 on this video something is off

アダムVlogs says:
