    Pressure = Force / unit area^2

    By having such massive tires and spreading out the force to a larger area, the pressure is reduced. This way the unit area squared force is small and does nto crush a person. Really nice application of science.

    Same idea is about displacement of water.

    Nice find brahmos!
