Default I want some of these!

For my ZTR. Already got my front tires foam filled several years ago but saw some of these recently and and looked them up . Cool! I've got 4 plugs in one of my rear tires - not sure how my wife finds all this crap to run over on our properties but she seems to be doing pretty well at it! Anyone have any experience? Cost?

MICHELIN® X® TWEEL® TURF Airless Radial Tire

No Maintenance
MICHELIN® X® TWEEL® TURF is one single unit, replacing the current tire/wheel/valve assembly. Once they are bolted on, there is no air pressure to maintain, and the common problem of unseated beads is completely eliminated.
No Compromise
MICHELIN X TWEEL TURF has a consistent hub height which ensures the mower deck produces an even cut, while the full-width poly-resin spokes provide excellent lateral stability for outstanding side hill performance. The unique design of the spokes helps dampen the ride for enhanced operator comfort, even when navigating over curbs and other bumps. High performance compounds and an efficient contact patch offer a long wear life that is two to three times that of a pneumatic tire at equal tread depth.
No Downtime
MICHELIN X TWEEL TURF performs like a pneumatic tire, but without the risk and costly downtime associated with flat tires and unseated beads.

They are pretty cool. I've spent a lot of time in various Michelin plants. They tested a bunch out on golf carts used for shuttling maintenance personnel. Very neat concept.

That's where I saw them the other day. Was on the LSU campus and saw their grounds guys were driving JD ZTRs with them.
