Goodyear designed a tire that could help cars fly

New York (CNN Business)Flying cars, though still very much science fiction, could one day disrupt Goodyear’s tire business. If flying cars ever take over the roadways — and skyways — Goodyear would want a chunk of that market.

The company has designed an airless tire, called the Goodyear Aero, which would double as a propeller. The Aero tires would have bladed spokes that act as a fan allowing the wheels to flip upward and help propel a car into the air.
Goodyear’s (GT) flying tire is currently just a conceptual design. Chris Helsel, Goodyear’s chief technology officer, said the design is meant to spark discussion about transportation options for the future.
