Colored and scented tires...

http://www.autoblog.com/2005/11/06/k...erbal-scented/

There are a bunch of youtube videos with these tires. Seems kind of a waste but I guess there's a market for them.

Re: Colored and scented tires...

Not so much that there is a market for them, more the company is grasping for something other than performance to sell a product... It's too bad that research and development costs for stuff like this raise the prices of products when all they need is testamony from someone like Mary Pozzi running their street tires against cars with real race tires and staying on their heels...

Re: Colored and scented tires...

my favorite scent would be the aroma of freshly cut wheat. There was a stretch of road between my town and another town, lined on both sides by wheat fields. To this day, I'll go 2 miles out of my way to take that exit off 1-40, and put the windows down. Heck, now I can get that smell driving down the Hollywood Freeway!! I'll take some!
