Polaris All-Terrain Vehicle with Airless Tires (video)

Introducing the Sportsman WV850 H.O.
It's an all-terrain military inspired vehicle with a hefty price tag of $15,000. Not only does it have a full-metal exoskeleton, it also has airless tires that are unpoppable TerrainArmor which can withstand blasts from M4, AK-47, and .50-caliber ballistics... 
-Check out the commercial for it below: 

The tires' inner structure is a mesh design that supports the weight of the vehicle, while sill being flexible enough to soak up bumps. There's still a rubber outer tread so, like conventional tires, different tread patterns can be developed for different applications. In addition to not never needing a trip to the gas station's air pump, the TerrainArmor tires are reportedly less wasteful, because only the outer tread section needs to be replaced. They also offer a more comfortable ride and reduce noise.
