    KUMHO Introduces World’s First “Aroma Tire” For Select Passenger Vehicles

    U.S. market will carry limited lavender tires, and later, orange and jasmine scents

    KUMHO Tire USA...December 21, 2006...announces the introduction of the world’s first fragrance automotive tire, the ECSTA DX. The project is the “fruition” of more than a year’s worth of research and development to deliver an alluring aroma tire that replaces the normal “black rubber” smell with heat-resistant oils in the scent of lavender, and in later versions, neroli (orange) or jasmine.
    I wonder if the scents will make K9s sneeze While laughing at people who buy these, I'm half in serious wondering if there will be an investigative benefit if this catches on. For that matter, I wonder if dogs can help identify current tires. Noticed this while reading a thread populated by street racers/wannabe drifters.

    And here I'd been laughing at Kumho for their name. I didn't know there was more frivolity to come.

    Reminds me of the new Old Spice deodorant commercial "And if you don't like ours, we'll buy you a stick of something that smells like flowers and shame."

    Honestly, how often do normal people sniff their tires, anyhow?

    Depends on how drunk you are when you come crawling out of the bar.

    We are the thin blue line
    between you
    and all the money in the world.

    And no you can't have any.
