The United States military is always developing new products for soldiers and civilians. Since Operation Desert Storm in the early 1990s, the U.S. military has spent a significant amount of time navigating through the sandy Middle East. So, having a properly equipped vehicle that can handle the arid, sandy conditions has always been a priority. By early 2014, manufacturers plan to start carrying non-pneumatic tires that have been developed by the military (Howerton). Non-pneumatic tires are airless tires that will not flatten because they are filled with a flexible web. These new tires are just another development in the world of sand tires. When shopping for a tire that can handle the demands of riding on the beach or through the desert, there are a few things to keep in mind.
