Wheels keep turning
Tyres have to be really durable - just ask those chaps I saw screaming around Sepang Circuit in the Malaysian F1 Grand Prix last week. Ideally as long as they're on your car they should stay in one piece. But once they get a bit bald and tired, what then? Their durability becomes a liability from the standpoint of a landfill. In the souk in Marrakech last month we came across a booming business that made everything under the sun from old Firestones. Is this an example of the circle of life?
