Michelin and GM are working on a puncture-proof tire

New York (CNN Business)Michelin and General Motors have teamed up to literally reinvent the wheel.

The two companies have rolled out a new airless wheel prototype to replace traditional tires that are filled with air and prone to puncturing.
It’s called the Uptis Prototype, which stands for “Unique Puncture-proof Tire System.” GM and Michelin unveiled the new tire at an event Tuesday in Montreal.
