Some ideas of my own: It may enable flight and long distance driving without charging. As the connection is magnetic and not mechanical, there is the option to quickly remove the wheels: may enable cars to fly (leaving heavy wheels on the ground), or may enable hot-swappable wheel/battery combinations. Goodyear present their reasons in the middle video from 3:10.
And if you drive too fast over a hump-backed bridge, you won't even need the thief there to remove it! It'll do it autonomously!! Elon will love it !!!... The wheel is not attached. So it is easier to steal.
Spherical tyres will last longer because the wear is spread around the entire surface, and fewer changes will mean less shipping/changing costs. Spherical wheels could also be immune to needing wheel alignment, so overall maintenance costs could be lower.Spherical tyres are bigger so will be more expensive.
Funny how that never happened to the wheel in my computer mouse!And if you drive too fast over a hump-backed bridge, you won't even need the thief there to remove it! It'll do it autonomously!! Elon will love it !!!
