Safety: Discolored Tires Show Wear and Tear

An invention that can greatly enhance our safety on the road. Discolor Tire is a patent submitted by two designers, Gao Fenglin & Zhou Buyi, that places a colored layer underneath the normal black rubber of a tire.

Once you ride your motorcycle, the rubber starts wearing down, and the more it wears down, the more unsafe the tire becomes. With Discolor Tire, the closer you come to having the replace your tires, the more orange the tires become. Simple and efficient.

Discolor Tire

Currently, tire manufacturers place small indicators that become visible when the tire wears down, but it's not easy to see these indicators, since they are black as well. You are required to get down on your knees and inspect the tire, not very user friendly. This system is an easy and quick visual way of inspecting your tires. Just walk up to your motorcycle and you'll see quickly that your tires need to be replaced or not.

Of course, it also means that the cops can quickly tell if your tires need to be replace, and pull you over for a nice juicy fine, but in the interest of safety, this is very handy. They already won a few design awards, now all they need is the tire manufacturers to pick up their patent.
