New Goodyear tires with kevlar

Goodyear came out with a couple of new tires this week with kevlar in them. I guess I'll just drool for a while because my rig came with almost new boy sized comercial T/A BFG's.

This one is also new if the first one was too agressive:

Are they bulletproof? I hate it when my tires get shot out by the cops in high speed chases...

Jage-

If you're worried about those pesky bullet holes during car chases, check out the tires in my gallery.

Re: New Goodyear tires with kevlar

I just read an article last week about run-flat tire technology and the different approaches being explored, and the pros and cons.... I will see if I can find it.

(Jage, is there a way or place to upload and store documents?)

You can use the "upload attachment" below during composing a post to attach .pdf files as well as images.

You can attach .zip as well, but they have to be uncompressed and are "use at your own risk" because it they may contain viruses or malware.
