The Michelin Uptis ("Unique Puncture-proof Tire System") prototype is a successor of the Vision 3D-printed rubber tires; like the previous generation, the airless technology used to create these tires makes them more durable.

On Tuesday at the Movin'On Summit in MontrĂ©al, Michelin and GM announced a descendent of the Vision airless, 3D-printed tire originally revealed in 2017: the Uptis tire. 


On the opening day of the Movin'On Summit in Montreal, a conference dedicated to sustainable mobility, Michelin and General Motors together announced their latest rendition of the airless tire that's puncture-proof, blow-out-proof and flat-proof. 

The Michelin Uptis ("Unique Puncture-proof Tire System") prototype is a successor of the Vision 3D-printed rubber tires; like the previous generation, the airless technology used to create these tires makes them more durable and longer-lasting since problems like flats, blowouts, and irregular wear due to over- or under-inflation are completely eliminated.
