I recently saw a video clip of those tires mounted on an Audi, they took a slalom course through a couple cones and the sidwalls didnt budge much at all.  It was pretty impressive!  But I do not see that design working well on a small rim/tall off road tire due to the sidewall flexing but then again im not an engineer!

I think anything is possible, but I think offroaders will stick with air since we can air them down to increase traction, then air them back up to drive home.

Comedy is the last refuge of the nonconformist mind.
