Answer: What has been done to the tires to avoid future problems?

The question was this: "What changes have been made to the wheels to prevent 'flat tires' like what happened to Steve at Bournemouth and Karkow at KSLN? "

Here is the answer:
"There are no tubes in the tires. Likely the air is leaking out through the wheels which consist of two pieces bolted together. The material types for the o-ring that seals between the wheel halves has been changed. However we are experiencing extremely cold temperatures so the o-rings may have no effect."
