Technology is what drives the industry. So far, I've only been doing tire stuff.

Forget about flats

Is a run-flat tire in your automotive future? Goodyear and Michelin are betting on it.

Michelin's PAV tire, with its coke-bottle sidewalls and vertical mounting, leads not only to improved handling, but also advantages in wet traction, rolling resistance and extended mobility. Don't look for it anytime soon, though.

With all of the capability that EMTs offer you, you'll need a pressure-monitoring system too. Fortunately, SmarTire, developed by a Vancouver firm, is accurate,easy-to-use and almost fun.
