Some folks say tires all look the same. I’ve said it myself. And while technically tires do have visible differences, it’s only if you take a close look. Unless you’re comparing racing tires and street tires. In this case, the differences are pretty obvious, even to non-tire nerds. Why so different? Because race tires and passenger tires are designed for completely different uses. Racing slicks are all about getting as … Continue reading
Yes, if Goodyear has anything to say about it. Earlier this month at the Geneva Motor Show, they unveiled the Goodyear tire of the future — the BHO3. This concept aims to not only collect the energy generated by the tire as it rolls while you drive but also when parked: textured patches on the tire absorb heat and light from the sun, producing additional energy when the car is idle.

I even like their ads, and it’s not always easy to make tires exciting (I mean RightTurn is good at it, but not everyone is). Source: gsdm.com What really blows my mind is that Goodyear has been around since 1898! More than a century of experience—it’s no wonder … Continue reading

Back in August, I was lucky enough to score a ride on the one and only Goodyear blimp. Well technically there are three of them: I rode the Spirit of Goodyear, which is based in Akron, Ohio (home of Goodyear’s headquarters). There’s also Spirit of America in Carson, California, and Spirit of Innovation in Pompano Beach, Florida. It was an incredible experience and I’m so grateful to RightTurn for making it … Continue reading
