Michelin Reinvents the ‘Tweel’ With 3D-printed Vision Concept

18th June 2017

Read it.

Michelin has developed a new way to change a tire.

Its Vision concept is an airless ‘tweel’ made from 3D-printed bio-sourced materials that allow for new and different treads to be applied as they wear down or the seasons change.

Designed to mimic the structure of coral, it is stiff at the center and gets gradually softer as it approaches the outside edge.
