I have one request, if you watch this video and decide to give it a low rating, please leave some kind of short explanation in the comments as to why you decided it deserved a low rating. Thanks!
In this video I review a truly impressive product made by American company Amerityre, which specializes in advanced polyurethane elastomer technology and using it to make the best tires in the world. But before I say more..
Consumer Advantages: Runs cooler for longer life Lower rolling resistance gives improved fuel economy Single material pour reduces possibility of separation Potential lower price due to reduced manufacturing cost
Manufacturing Advantages: Lower capital investment Less floor space required Lower energy cost Lower labor cost Less scrap and waste
Technology Summary: High abrasion resistance = longer life Lower rolling resistance = improved fuel economy No oils or plasticizers = environmentally friendly Better elastic properties = reduced operating temperatures True closed cell technology = no water absorption High density material = excellent load carrying capability UV and ozone resistant = will not break down
Thousands of people are killed or critically injured every year in the US because of rubber tire blowouts. Millions more are inconvenienced by flat tires. Think of all that time and energy wasted because of this clearly dysfunctional technology. Entire industries exist simply to service and repair punctured tires. Meanwhile all those ruined tires pile up in landfills, waterways, burn piles and wherever else people choose to dump them. But none of that has to be. The technology exists today to create superior tires.
I know because I've been using them for almost three years now. Check out your options, don't settle for inferior technology when you have better alternatives that not only look and perform better, but could save your life. Vote with your money, it's the only language that big corporations like Michelin understand.
