LEGO is the largest tire manufacturer in the World

Postby OverLoad » Sun May 20, 2012 11:00 pm

Hey guys,

As I was browsing Wikipedia, I noticed a familiar piece, a 2x2 red wheel with a tire around it. It was in the "Did you know..." section of the front page, and I was delighted to read that LEGO is the largest manufacturer of tires in the world, despite making tires much smaller than other manufacturers. :lol:

See for yourself, in 2011, LEGO produced nearly twice as many tires as major tire producers such as Goodyear, Michelin, and Bridgestone. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lego_tire

Interesting tidbit I found. Thought some of you might get a kick out of it. :)

Nice find! The article is right. With all the sets with cars and trucks, Lego is making lots of tires. It is also making lots of cars too. Maybe Honda or Toyota should watch out.
You've got to ask yourself one question,"Do I feel lucky?" Well do ya, punk?

Not only the most, but also the most durable! I mean those tires last decades without even wearing off...
