Hey Tire Safety Question....

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I drive a IS 350 and I was wondering.....Before the IS came out I was looking at the Nissan 350Z (yea I know big difference :P ) and the sales guy said that the Z has a safety feature where if your driving and you get a flat the tire will wrap itself around the rims to prevent you from losing control, now my question is, does the IS have this safety feature as well?

Thanks, but no thanks.

We worked on some wheel/tires like that back in the 80's. Ours looked like a sombrero with a strip of rubber tread on the edge. We actually had guys driving around with them on their cars. The technology ended up being used inside regular tires for application on armored VIP limos.
