Skinny Tire Prototype looks for money to go into production

Check out the design of this electric car. Wonder what kind of range improvement you could get with the motorcycle width tires this thing is using. You could always build a car using tire sets that belong on brass era cars.

That would be really great for those building period style sports cars. It would look a lot better then running on modern wide and low profile rubber.
I wouldn't say no to using them myself as being car tyres they would have a better life then motorbike tyres.
Thats not a bad idea. Ive seen a few fairly aerodynamic brass era sports cars. Only problem I see is getting tires for them. I know Coker sells tires for them, but not sure if they are radials or bias ply only.
