I couldn't find my Yokohama tires listed in the Michelin site.
Thank you... I've bookmarked the website for the future.

I mentioned the Rocketail... I think earlier... which seems to have lost much of its support from retail.
I think is pretty compact, and has interesting flow data.
Mercedes IAA concept:

It's hard to see from this angle, but the extension panels are fairly straight so the extrude from a body that tapers back to the separation edge.

Yokohama has a calculator of their own: https://www.yokohamatruck.com/tire-t...ngs-calculator

Looks like they list their 023, 101, 108, 109, 114, 517, 617, 703, 709, 712, and 715 tires on it...

I've thought an inflatable aero treatment made the most sense.

Make it so it's foolproof and easy, that lazy slobs will still be compliant.

Make it with relief valves so lazy forgetful slobs don't break things when they back into a loading bay without deactivating the system.

Maybe make it out of the type of rubber used in high end rafts (PVC?). Tolerates higher pressure and abrasion resistant.

Perhaps it could be made so that when the pump is reversed, the thing sucks back into a minimal storage compartment out of the way.

*Not implying all or even most truckers are lazy slobs

it definitely has possibilities. And a way to get it to "deflate it" would be important, even for a RV.
Here's another one...neither really address this

inflatable

I can testify that even 'mediocre' inflatable tails will show at the gas pump or charging station.
I'd link a photo, but the 'manage attachments' no longer exists.

I've never understood the attraction of attachments. I raided your albums:

raided

Last two times I attempted to share images, there was no longer the 'MANAGE ATTACHMENTS' button to use.
Not sure what's happened.
