The Next Big Thing: Bridgestone Prints Patterns on Tires
8 Mars 2012 - Autoblog
How many times have you said to yourself, "Self, I've modded every single part of my car, but those tires, they're just so... black. And boring." Bridgestone has the answer in the form of its Tire Printing Technology.
Comprised of two layers of ink – one below and one above a protective coating – you can fully customize the design of your sidewalls using any kind of vector-based graphics. Bridgestone claims the outer most layer won't succumb to scrapes and scratches, and neither the durability or the weight of the tires are compromised by the technology.
Bridgestone hasn't set a date for production, but the tires could be available as early as this summer.
