Michelin Tweel Technologies, a division of Michelin North America, Inc., is introducing a new 26-inch airless radial tire with a four-bolt wheel-pattern hub designed for use on UTVs that will initially be sold as a fitment for the replacement market. Originally designed for military special operations use on light-tactical vehicles, the MICHELIN X TWEEL UTV 26x9N14 airless radial tire is a single unit that replaces the current pneumatic tire/wheel/valve assembly. Once bolted on, there is no air pressure to maintain, thus eliminating the need to carry spare tires, tools or repair kits.
