Went down to the junkyard and welded everything he could find to it.

Goodyear molded the tires in specialized molds, then heated them to 250 degrees. The end result was a tire which was built more like a thick mesh net. They were tubeless tires even and performed well up to 65 MPH.

The problems turned up in rain or when braking hard. Any skateboarder can tell you what a hard sideways slide does to urethane wheels. You get a flat spot where it melts.

The tires also had one other negative effect. They were so distracting, other drivers stopped driving or worse, drove through stop lights when they debuted them.
Over the top. :P

But easy to clean, which enhanced the resale value.

The lack of seatbelts, headrest and non-tempered glass was all just a bonus ride into hell

My wife's new Honda CRV gets 40 city, 35 highway. I'd say that's better.
