    will the police will be lost trying to find the depth

    I think the police will have a problem trying to measure the depth of tread... They will have to have micrometers..

    Would it not be great.. tires for the life of a vehicle. But then they said man could not fly.

    Interesting.

    But no adjusting air for load or conditions. But maybe you don't need to.

    Suspect flatspotting could be a problem.

    They were originally developed for the military but the first users here were on Bobcat skid steer loaders.

    Story of my life I retired early just as They screwed my pension and I invested money in shares in the company that make Stingers!:cry:
