Black is boring; try Colored Tires from China
Published on December 3, 2011 by Tycho de Feijter
What about pink tires under your pink Ferrari California? In China this will be possible soon thanks to Double Star Tires from the great city of Qingdao in Shandong province. Double Star developed a patented process to make tires in any color, fittingly this new product is called ‘Rainbow’, it will hit the market soon and likely with great success.
Colored tires coming down the production line. Double Star sees many possibilities; sure to make a car look cool, but also green tires for the military, black for police, yellow for school buses and so more. It is not yet clear how much a set of pinkies will cost, Double Star only said the colored tires will be ‘slightly more expensive’ than standard black.
Red Rainbow tires fitted under a taxi for a test.

Well, me think this all a great idea. Next step is to make tires with more than one color, or fluorescent colors, or some truly rainbow-tires, or pink with white dots, that’ll be nice, or tires with cartoons on it. Everything, is possible.
