If anything there has been some recent CTIS Tesla patents for semi that might also work for CT for a central tyre inflation system. That would be really cool, and leave everything else in its wake. The best solution for all situations, also when you have a slow leak.
The Mercedes AMG 6x6 G-class has that.

What about 'bubble wrap' tyres

A tyre with lots of air pockets. You can have punctures , but it will still drive on it for hundreds of miles… Until ready to fix it.

It would perhaps have half or a quarter of inner tube, layer of 'bubble wrap', and a tread.

Apparently the engineer that was working on the Tesla version is originally from Mercedes Unimog that has had CTIS for decades in their portal axles.

Would be cool if we get it even as an option.

You can already buy bead locker run flats for most off road wheels. Fairly easy to retrofit and you can go down really low in pressure without the tyre slipping on the rims meaning even more flotation.

FYI

A lot has been speculated on here, …will it have a Side Sail ?, where will we put the spare ?

I didn't realise it was explicitly mentioned.

I have just browsed the Cybertruck Tesla page, and low and behold, it's been there all the time.
(Can be missed as the page cycles to other pages in that specific section.)

…It also said that the CT would seat 6, with 3 in the front bench seat. Of course they realized that the touchscreen wont turn into an airbag in an accident.

Neither would the wheel of a steering wheel. Or a windshield. Or a window. Which is why they put them next to those.

It says toolbox comma tire and Cyberquad. Without the oxford comma, that can mean the tire and the Cyberquad fit at the same time.

So wonderful to see oxford comma mentions in a cybertruck thread Crissa.


makes me think of the best-ever Weird Al song and video for English geeks... Word Crimes:
