Oh Boy, Tires!

In perusing online car ads, it’s not uncommon to find a long list of features. You’ll see things like “power windows”, “power locks”, and “power heated and air-cooled seats” (ooooh!)

But there’s one that really gets me every time I see it: “radial tires.” Come on. Do you know what that means? Do you? That means that the car comes with tires that have been made in the last thirty years. And sure, there are other tires out there, but showing “radial tires” as a feature is like saying “dual headlights”, “front and rear brakes”, or “seats”. It’s pretty much standard.

Incidentally, if you find a car without headlights… let me know.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
