It’s the giant tire off the side of 1-94 in Allen Park, MI- It’s the Uniroyal Giant Tire!  And it’s all ours Detroit.

Did you know that the Uniroyal Giant Tire had a previous life as a Ferris wheel attraction at the 1964/1965 New York World’s Fair? It was relocated to Metro Detroit after 1965. In 1994 it got a new hub cap and, in 2003, a 1 million dollar make over.

Little know fact, in order for the Uniroyal Giant Tire to fit on a car the car would have to be 200 ft tall.
