    I wonder how well they hold up once they get packed with dirt mud and sharp gravel? Seems to me like the constant abrasion from debris on the inside would shorten the life of them long before the tread wears out
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    looks like a bullet would do little harm to those. wonder how many hours verses cost ratio. With care, they look as though they might last 4 or 5000 hrs. Maybe be only a couple of hundred : anyone know?.

    Also be interesting to see what sort of degradation in performance when the spokes are packed with dirt/mud

    yeah that is what I meant in my post.
    A few years ago I remember another brand came out with honeycomb spoke airless tires once these became packed tight with mud or dirt and rock they rather quickly degraded due to abrasion and lack of flexibility.but worked well for warehouse forklift type tires
