Non-pneumatic tires

Hankook's airless tires inch closer to reality

I see those online from various companies but think they might have balance issues if rocks ice etc. get in those cavities.

Not really. Back when I was a fulltime Guardsman, and in charge of 20-odd humvees (as an E-4), we were looking at something similar for our vehicles. Tires like this are actually self-clearing, something that the MTs and MTRs on the Humvees aren't.
