Michelin Tweels are commercially available for agricultural and construction vehicles only, such as skid loaders and commercial mowers, and cost significantly more than conventional pneumatic radial tires, as of 2015. A Tweel for a front end loader costs around $1,200, compared to $200 to $800 for a conventional counterpart.
John Deere commercial mowers that are equipped with Tweels typically cost $750 more than the same model with standard tires. The Tweel is a tire and wheel combination that has a replaceable tread, and polyurethane spokes instead of air for support. The commercial applications targeted for the Tweel have a high rate of flat tires with conventional models, due to the work environment, that cause expensive downtime.
