Goodyear Tires debuted its flight-friendly convertible tires at the Geneva Motor Show. Following its planet-friendly moss offering, the company is tapping into the movement of the "urban aerial mobility ecosystem."

The flying car concept is designed to address the ever-growing issue of traffic and get individuals where they need to be faster. The convertible tires offer a convenience-focused crossover between the two modes of transportation. Goodyear's product boast fiber optic sensors that have the capability to track flight integrity, as well as road conditions, ultimately assuring safety standards are kept up.

The convertible tires feature an airless loop that has been filled with a set of fan blades. The wheels can rotate downwards and spin to transition from road-optimized to air-friendly transportation modes.
