Schi-502 do you have any ideas on how to bulletproof the tires?
I am not an expert on this and not finding much on it...
Will have to go back in the topic and look for the products I had posted several months ago.

Terrypat you R not butting in, young man.  ;D We need your expert opinion.
Wow thanks! I hadn't thought of that. I thought of kevlar but didn't know how that would be used...Thanks also for the link.
Can you post a description of what it looks like on the tire and how to do this?  Not finding the info yet.
I did find some kevlar tires... the ads didn't specifically say they were bulletproof.
More ideas, keep em comin' ;D

Hey y'all,
You can also have them filled with foam. It costs $2-300 depending on where you get it done. This also allows you to carry more weight in the vehicle. They mainly do it for work trucks to make them puncture proof.

Here's another more clear example of the skirts &
how they would attach to the body of the vehicle.

Look at the clips & pins used. THis is an extreme example but a "c" clip between the lip of the skirt
& vehicle fender. This museum piece was built in the 1930's. The AUTOUNION (Audi) streamliner. It
was built to examine drag coefficients in a wind tunnel. The skirts are removable.

Here's a 30's Horch with the skirts added.

Terrypat and all, thanks for bringing this idea forward - skirts on the back tires to help deflect bullets. If someone was standing on a road or behind you in a car it is likely they would be aiming at the back tires the ones closes to them as you drive off. So skirts could really help.
Question: Will just a regular metal skirt like in that old car deflect most bullets? Or do we need to put on kevlar skirts?

It would help against some hand guns it would do very little against a high power rifle. for the price of that Horch you could buy a nice armored P.C.

Repeating info I had posted in a previous post.
I feel it is a good idea to get a motorcycle, smaller version with the dual sport tires.
The kind of bike which you can dart in and out of traffic and then run up over dirt etc. Pavement and dirt.
I can see a bike like that working out really well! They could be put inside a big haul van or maybe in a pickup
truck (bugout) in case the vehicle fails or the road is blocked at least the people could get to the location on bikes.
At least a better chance, unless it is hailing fire and brimstone, etc. Bring tools of some sort with your kit in case you need to take
a shortcut across some barrier in an emergency. - Yowbarb

Is this what you mean by an Armadillo? Type of biclycle tire?
