    Looked at the site, how does it work? Where does the air pressure come from?

    I dunno.

    I was wondering, somehow friction or something, was wondering if it would actually work vs having to drill/tap through axle into hub,

    only video of if it works is useless.


    But, it’s backed by Michelin, i’ve read..

    I believe they mount on the end of the hub and the center free wheel’s and floats separately from its outer “ring” sorta like a hubometer. The center has an external air line that runs down to it for supply in its center. The outer “ring” has the air lines to the valve stems and rotates at wheel speed with it.
    Busses have been running them for a decade or so and you always notice the odd external airlines running down to the steer axle hub from the wheel wells above the tires.

    I have seen trucks use full rear fenders to mount the lines from.

    It only mounts to the outside of the hub, then has two air lines going to your drives, or a single one for a steer.
    Yes, it kinda floats around like a hubometer. It has several free pistons inside so it functions exactly like an air compressor and will maintain your tires at the preset pressure.
    Although it has a very low cfm rate so it wouldn’t take much of a leak to over come it, a small nail or screw it may be able to keep up with if it sealed enough.
     
    Judge and SmallPackage Thank this.

    Doing more research those are Vigia brand. The Halos may create the air pressure using turbo fan rotor theory of pulling in the air and building it up while rotating.
     
    Judge Thanks this.
