I had something similar to those on a skid loader I ran. They ride horrible an traction sucked. They just dont flex like a regular tire. But on a jobsite with nails an rebar sticking out of the ground they were worth every penny.

yea not being able to adjust how they flex would suck. Unless of course you had an off road only set that ran like 10 PSI tires.

Wow they actually flex more then what I thought. But I'm sure they are engineered for the HMMV weight and thats it. Too bad the HMMV is on its way out of military use and they all are to be destroyed. Civilians can buy duece an a halfs bur the HMMV has to be recycled to scrap metal.
