They are kind of like run-flat tires. I have seen similar tires on a skidsteer.

That's a milapp tubeless all terrain tire intended for combat in Afghanistan according to my contacts in the surplus business. The tire is mega $$$$$$$$$. They tell me there is no app beyond the Humvee. I've seen it once about three years ago when a train came through Houston headed to the Ship Channel.

Well....maybe I need to get a Humvee to tow behind the bus!!! I love the genuine Humvee's...not the bastardized versions that they call Hummers.

I can't stand working on them. There's no room for my fingers under the cowling to speak of. Too many skid plates with too many securing bolts, among many other issues.
