I promise, I only smoke ultra-light cigarettes and checked that there was nothing unusual added to my morning coffee. I am also certain it’s not April’s fool….Could not believe my eyes when I received an email from a certain Marc Gargiulo proposing these psychedelic tires guaranteed for 100,000 miles and manufactured to fit any american, European or Asian car and motorcycles.
His claim: “you thought neon or hydraulics were cool. This is next year – available today – Tire.N.Rim.One.”
Marc adds this explanation: “We’ve created a series of interchangeable molds, (in our Cleveland industrial-park setting] which are then filled with recycled, vulcanized rubber. While molten, we infuse with an electric, tie-dye effect. These tire are 1”-deep treaded for excellent traction in inclement weather and they comply with street-legal legislation nationally. Please, allow 21 days for delivery”. Of course, no website, no tel. number, just an address. Mark Gargiulo, 1305 West 80th Street, studio West 3B, Cleveland, Ohio 44102. Very funny? NOT. Getting another cup of coffee.
