Firestone tires in the 1960 Indy 500 had a cool design safety feature

Friday, September 23rd, 2016 by admin

Firestone tires were built with a little orange strip molded into the rubber such that when it showed up during use, it meant the tire had about two or three laps of full-speed racing before: “There would be two loud noises. First one, tire blowing and the inner tube couldn’t stand the weight and the second noise was the car banging the wall and all the crap that goes with it, which was usually fire.”

Do any tires have something this clear to indicate the ens of useful tire life?
