Now, off-road vehicle specialist Polaris plans to debut a consumer version of an “airless” Non-Pneumatic Tire (NPT) by early next year. Made from a proprietary plastic, the NPT replaces the conventional tire carcass with a flexible web. “The tire works very similar to a bicycle wheel, where the load is carried in tension across the top of…
