I think you mean silicone - silicon is the hard stuff they make computer chips out of silicone is the flexible polymer.
It wouldn't do the handling any good and would be very heavy, but probably both of these are minor considerations if you are being shot at.
They wouldn't have to be actually solid - they could be foam filled (closed cell) .Over the last few years I have lost more tyres through punctures than from wear. It's always upsetting when 'the man' says he can't repair a tyre because the 'ply' is damaged.When I started driving in the sixties, I never got a puncture. Lately, it happens all the time. Is it just my experience or are there more nails etc. about?
(I hope 'the man' didn't deceive you!)
Aren't there ' puncture-less ' tires about nowadays ?
