We have a lot of business going on in the shop for such a rainy day! Don't forget we take appointments if you would rather hold out for a sunny one ;)
Fun fact: The World’s Largest Tire is in Allen Park Michigan. The tire is a 12-ton, 80 foot-tall tower of rubber that was built to withstand hurricane-force winds. It served as a Ferris wheel at the 1964-65 New York’s World Fair. The tire was later moved to Allen Park in 1966 where an urban legend has it that the tire broke loose and rolled across I-94. But there is not evidence of such a thing every happening!
Notice the changes in appearance in the tire. It has received a few makeovers to be apart of the trending tire looks. http://ow.ly/i/6NySo http://ow.ly/i/6NyYM http://ow.ly/i/6NyZ6

Notice how the appearance of the tire changes from it's original debut in the pictures. The tire received a makeover in 1998 :)
The picture with the nail is legit. The nail was made and hence is the largest nail at 250 pounds and 11 feet long! It sold on eBay for $3,000 to Ralph Roberts. Uniroyal used it as a way to promote their "Nail Guard", puncture resistance feature on their tires.

Sorry for the silence but I have to break it!
I've been out of town but we have some great things happening at the store! Right now we have a buy 4 get $70 back on Michelin's (again!!). That sale ends June 15th.
Right around the corner, we will be offering buy 4 get up to $70 back on BFGoodrich tires! That starts JUNE 16. This is a heck of a deal from the distributors. Stay tuned as we may be having a surprise added onto that as well.
Because it's been a minute so I owe you a laugh, I hope I can make you all smile before you get off work! Check out this short video: http://youtu.be/n5eJoT27mPo
