According to Mashable, airless tyres for everyday cars might soon become commonplace on our roads, thanks to General Motors and Michelin Tyres.

The two companies have unveiled a prototype of Uptis (Unique Puncture-proof Tire System), a tire intended for passenger cars.

Airless tyre technology has several benefits both for the vehicle driver and for the planet. The tyres use less raw material and less energy in their production, reduce the number of scrapped tires from puncture or damage, eliminate most irregular wear issues from over or under inflation, and reduce dangers on the road from blowouts and sudden flats.

Michelin also revealed the finished version will be a mainstream reality on passenger cars as early as 2024.

Check out the prototype:
