Airless Tires

Has anybody here tried airless tires? http://www.airfreetires.com/shopping/c-14-26-inch.aspx I am wondering what kind of luck you have had with these? Thanks

general opinion is that they are crap! There have been quite a few threads on these, but there are a minority of people who like them.

If you want puncture protection choose Armadillo tyres or Schwalbe Marathon Plus.

Search is your friend. This topic has been beaten to death The short answer is there were reasons that most tires are balloon. Modern Airless still don't provide adequate rim protection, are hard and lack directional stability.
