A tire that will eliminate the inconvenience of disabling flat tires has been introduced in Europe by Goodyear. It was showcased at a Geneva Auto Salon presentation earlier in March. Designated the Eagle GS-C EMT (extended mobility tire), the tire can reportedly run up to 300 km at 90 km/hr (200 miles at 55 mph) at zero inflation pressure, according to Goodyear. The design features special technology in mold shape and sidewall reinforcements to keep it mounted on a standard wheel during severe cornering, eliminating the need for special, expensive humped wheels.
