  1. While it can be classified as a NPT. It more closely resembles and operates like a tweel. A rubber tire wrapped around lexible polyurethane spokes. The problem with the design is that as higher speeds (50+ mph) it gives off unwanted heat (larger friction area), also it gives off unbearable noise.

  2. Pneumatic tires have a much, much lower rolling resistance than non-pneumatic tires like you see here. The military probably only uses these because they won’t puncture. Google “non-pneumatic tires”, I’m not exactly an expert.

  3. How so ? Enlighten us all on your all knowing knowledge.. You don’t know any information about the tweels, neither person can make either assumption on the video itself. You’re not using your brain correctly. Also obviously either of you never looked up this technology because the mile per gallon is unhindered for said tweel.
