This has been discussed before (2008) but I thought it would be worth bringing it up again. I'm going to have them installed on my bus and truck.  Course if you loose your tread, or the tire just plainly blows up, nothing can save you from that.  Go to tyron.com.  Good Luck, TomC

It appears to be made for tyres.   Will it also work for tires?   (Just wondering . . .)

Doesn't the majority of all truck tire failures occur because of a loss of the tread or they just plain blow up?

The majority of tires fail by way of air pressure loss, which leads to running hot from excessive flexing, then they come apart, littering the highway and tearing up the underside of the coach as they leave.

happy coaching!

I've lost both, tubeless tires on drop-center rims, and also tube-type on multi-piece rims, without a drop center. I can't say that between the two I recall a significant difference in maintaining control during the flat.

Myself, I guess I'm not convinced that during tire failure the tubeless tire falling into a rim's drop is a significant issue. Even watching the video it doesn't look like the tire bead had any particular tendency to "walk" toward the rim's drop or to the installed band. In fact, I sort of wonder that if a tire is going to leave the wheel, the sooner it can be jettisoned the better the rest of the ride down will be. But, I haven't conducted any scientific studies either.
