The folks at Kumho Tires are rolling out scented tires… for the ladies. And I’m rolling my eyes at the horrid pun I just dropped back there. Personally, I like the smell of tires. I’m not too crazy about the smell of burnouts, but there’s something oddly alluring about the slightly-toxic scent of new tires.
I imagine that the new lavender scented tires will be very popular with the pimps and the ladies alike. This is not just a concept- these tires are on sale now! What’s next? progesterone in the tire aisles?
Kumho also has tires that make colored smoke when you burn out! Very creative. I wonder if they leave colored skid marks. Also, what a great marketing ploy- selling tires that reward you for wearing them out faster!
