People of Walmart, rejoice...your tires have arrived!
« on: March 08, 2012, 10:13:56 AM »
Autoblog
http://www.autoblog.com/2012/03/07/the-next-big-thing-bridgestone-prints-patterns-on-tires/

How many times have you said to yourself, "Self, I've modded every single part of my car, but those tires, they're just so... black. And boring." Bridgestone has the answer in the form of its Tire Printing Technology.

Comprised of two layers of ink one below and one above a protective coating you can fully customize the design of your sidewalls using any kind of vector-based graphics. Bridgestone claims the outer most layer won't succumb to scrapes and scratches, and neither the durability or the weight of the tires are compromised by the technology.

Bridgestone hasn't set a date for production, but the tires could be available as early as this summer. And if it hits in time, there's little doubt we'll be seeing plenty of horrid designs lining the halls of SEMA.

I saw that on Autoblog. Certainly not for me but I can see some pretty outrageous graphics printed on them by some.

Without a doubt the PERFECT accessory for the boy race street urchins that start blinging up their poser-mobile with beer can exhausts. Suddenly, laser surgery to make me nearsighted seems attractive.

BTW, why insult the Wal-Mart customer base?? These fugly things will be "appreciated" by the street squirrels that have sex with themselves while watching Fast and Furious movies.

I suspect Choptop's reference to Walmart had something to do with this.

I just told a co-worker last week being featured on People of Walmart was on my bucket list.  They replied, I'm quite sure you've already accomplished that... :yay:

Yes, but will they create plaid smoke? You know the deal -- go BIG or go HOME !!!!!

Would it be wrong to have Bridgestone print "Goodyear" or some other tire manufacturer's name on the side of them?

This product could eliminate low profile tires since there isn't much sidewall to print on.

Somebody should let Marlboromike know about this.  Now he can put whitewalls on any car he wants.

Too funny!

Yeah I don't know why the link doesn't work. On my Mac at home I get to the site but it says;

"Sorry, the page you are looking for does not exist.

Basically, the link you clicked, or the URL you typed didn't work. There are a few possible explanations:

You have a "bad" link.
You may have typed the page address incorrectly, check your spelling and capitalizations.
The content you are trying to access no longer exists, was never available or we just placed it somewhere else!
Don't worry!

You can give our search a try :"


That's bizarre.
