Lexus UX gets bespoke white tires

Lexus has partnered with designed John Elliot to produce a set of Air Force 1 inspired tires for the UX. While the unique tread pattern is neat, I don't foresee these tires being all that durable. There is no mention of them being made available to the public, so I think these one offs were just for show.

The furthest I see this idea going with production models is with the color but even that has existed but very uncommon.
IMO, having the right wheel/tire combination and ride height to complement almost makes you forget how ugly some tires can be.

These are neat for a showcar, but not something that would work for street use. People have been claiming colored tires would become the next big thing, ever since Pirelli introduced them in Formula One.

Watch any video explaining even the cheapest and most affordable tire out there and, it quickly becomes obvious that a tire like this will get you into a lot of trouble and quick. On exception is if you're driving slow in dry conditions.
