They probably can't handle speed too well, so probably no application on cars?

Normal car tires flex in about the same amount. If they didn't flex they would be very hard and seriously impact handling from both a ride-harshness standpoint and a grip standpoint (harder rubber = less grip). The flexing also allows for a larger contact patch with the road.
