The World’s Most Expensive Tires Will Cost You $600,000!

How much do you think you could possibly spend on a set of tires? A few hundred, a few thousand?

The Bugatti Veyron caught out attention a few years back when it was revealed that its Michelin Super Sport tires cost upwards of $30,000 a set to replace. And with a thousand horsepower on tap, you can bet they needed to be replaced pretty often – especially considering that they’d basically disintegrate after 15 minutes of running at top speed. But this set of shoes from Z Tyre go well beyond that.

The rubber company based in Dubai (where else?) has created a set of tires worth a jaw-dropping $600,000. That’s enough to earn them a place in the Guinness Book of World Records as the “World’s Most Expensive Set of Car Tyres.” The secret to their value? The tires are bedazzled in 24-karat gold and embedded with diamonds.

We don’t imagine they grip any better than a good set of Pirelli P Zeros or Bridgestone Potenzas, or will last longer than the Veyron’s Michelins at speed. In fact we doubt they’ll be driven on much, if anyone has the assets to outweigh their common sense and actually purchase them. Then again, the proceeds from their purchase are earmarked towards the Zenises Foundation in support of its educational activities.

    take away their cash… this is beyond ridiculous.

  • Hobochicken

    Well, at least they’re scamming idiotic rich people for charity.

      I’m not so sure about that ‘charity’… “educational activities” mmmm

    i’m going to market Elmers style glue for Dubai schoolchildren.

    It will be a gold bottle with a fully diamond encrusted exterior.
    The glue will be made from the hoofs and bones of the most expensive showjumper horses.

    it will be infused with the most expensive Carthusia Italian Parfum.

    The bottle will also serve as a Wi-Fi hotspot 🙂

      why so much motivation? just take that bottle and glue some diamonds on it.. done – worth half a million now.

    Sheer stupidity.

    As much as I love cars, and everything about cars, my only reply to this is fuck you rubber company of Dubai. It’s a mockery to the imbalanced world that we live in that something like this even exists. It’s like paying 2 million for a handbag. I hope these tires fuck up the handling for whatever car these self centered assholes choose to buy them for.

      Arabs are tribal people, Dubai is one giant tribe. It’s like… you want them to give their wealth away to people who aren’t a member of their tribe?

  • InCotexM 3

    They need to go back and ride camels like they used to do.

  • carsmofo

    Relax people, I’m sure the whole purpose of this is to make some noise and to achieve that Guinness record. Even the Arabs themselves won’t be crazy enough to buy them.

    • TheHake

      Whaaat? Have you seen what they do to Ferrari’s? I’ve seen brand new Ferrari’s with holes cut in the dashboard by hand for a USB stick to the radio.

      • Mike Gonzalez

        well, maybe Ferrari should consider something as simple as a USB port for music playback in their cars

        • TheHake

          They have a sound system in there. It’s called a V12…

  • BrucieBruce

    More money than brains

  • Stephen Baxter

    How silly 🙂

  • now for something different

    And for something different from the same part of the world…
