Ingenious design! One down side I see is that it may hide leaks from the driver; the owner may not be aware of leaky tires on board that need patching.

Looks like an early April Fools post to me.

Maybe I missed something, I'll go clean my glasses ......

actually, Goodyear is releasing those tires for sale next year. I found this in Pop Mech magazine, then online.
What I do not get is how such a tiny tube will pressurize truck tire to say 70psi

Oh, and my Camry does do 46.3 mpg tank average. Sometimes. not sure which part of it was referred to as April fools.:NO NO NO:

That tiny tube has the opportunity of slowly pressurizing the tire over many, many cycles.
