Hmmm, theoretically there is no reason that this couldn't work for cars however in practice
it is likely to be extremely hard to make that kind of wheel design withstand the punishment
it would receive pounding down a motorway at 70+ miles an hour with several tons of vehicle
Also the reduced contact area is likely to significantly effect braking and cornering performance.
There are also other options for cars to achieve the same level of mobility that still use ordinary
wheels that are less practical on a wheelchair.
