Looking for a really rad ride? How about some edgy tires to go with it?
You need look no further than the annual genuflection to the almighty auto known as the North American International Auto Show, held for the 16th year in the Motor City. The continent's largest auto show, often simply called the Detroit Auto Show, unveils some ready-for-primetime and concept vehicles and concept tires-some hand-cut beauties-as well. Witness the General Motors Corp. Hummer H3T concept (at left). Footwear designer Nike Inc., using athletic-shoe cues, helped design the quirky, BFGoodrich concept tires on the vehicle's corners.
