OK, so getting a flat while airborne is not an issue, at least not till you try to land. That tire doesn't look any bigger than a conventional automobile tire, but it has to carry ten times the load at twice the speed. And check out the disk brake assembly. Slightly more substantial than what you find on your average super-car.

Surprisingly 300,000+ others did too.
