While there are many tires on the market today, there are none that are perfect for every weather condition imaginable.But now a team of German researchers are working to make the most technically advanced tire of all time.

According to Autoblog, the engineers are working on tires with electronic implants that analyse the road conditions and reshape the tire accordingly.

While there are tires made for every road condition, the majority of consumers seem to buy an all-season tire and expect it to be competent no matter where they drive.

If this electronic tire comes to market, it may actually make an all-season tire capable in every possible road condition. The engineers are working on a prototype now, but production is still a long way off.
