Looks like the sidewall will have no support where the hollow areas are

Im sure the overall form is sturdy enough to prevent excessive side wall flex...they wouldn't have spent the time and R&D to make something that isn't goin to work....would you ?

These inserts won't "grow" with the tire under acceleration and therefor the tire will have no support. Thats going to make for some interesting handling......

Sure the overall form may be stiff, but just pushing your finger on an M3 compound in that hollow area......

I think the idea is that the tire WONT balloon - the sidewall of the foam is stiff enough to not allow the tire to narrow up under acceleration.

Not really - if the plastic insert supports the sidewall in a horizontal direction there won't be any material to expand vertically. I'm sure the tire will stretch a bit and balloon but it would be far less dramatic than with a open cell or closed cell foam.

I like to see innovation...

My question would be...wouldn't there be a hard spot in the insert where the two AIRBAGS meet at the base of the insert...it seems to me that the insert would be inconsistant as it rolls

Just my thoughts

I would think they are inflated to a point where it would stretch the tire compound to a point where it could allow a pretty stiff sidewall. Some of you were saying that it would be too weak on the sidewalls... remember that you do want a little sidewall "flex" so that it conforms to the angle of the surface your on.

I'm interested to see how these work.. should be interesting.
