Soon to be NEW Ricer Fad



File under "zomg finally!" -- KUMHO Tires is releasing its ECSTA DX Aroma line of car tires featuring "Lavender Scent Technology," which, to translate for the non-marketers in the house, means they smell. Don't fret if lavender isn't your bag, baby -- the company plans to later introduce models with orange and jasmine aromas (what, no new car scent?). To eradicate that embarassing "plain old tire" smell from your ride, you'll have to part with $119, $125, or $138 per tire depending on your choice of size.

KUMHO ECSTA DX Aroma car tires roll out with lavender scent; don't ask why - Engadget

Re: Soon to be NEW Ricer Fad

First it was colored smoke...now we have scented rubber...must be really going after those metrosexuals and female ricers. I can't imaging a normal ricer even wanting their tires to smell all girly...but hey, they have proven their stupidity by being a ricer, so you never know.

I too was thinking they would probably come out with a weed sent tire.

It would probably be their best sell one.

Re: Soon to be NEW Ricer Fad

i can actually see some practical application here... imagine getting stuck behind a mcdonalds truck giving off the smell of fries and burgers or a pizza hut delivery man giving off the smell of pizza. you would probably get hungry.

Re: Soon to be NEW Ricer Fad

i dont understand, the only time i smell my tires is during or after a burnout. i guess smelly tires would be kinda nifty if youre teh DK, but for normal driving youd never smell it.

Re: Soon to be NEW Ricer Fad

If when they were doing burnouts they released some form of acid that really hurt it would be pretty cool as well. Or perhaps it could act like ether and make people pass out.
