So how are you selling them at $150 a tire

when I use the term "vogue", I'm talking about a style, not a brand. we don't produce the vogue "brand", we produce the look. Actually, we can take the look a step further. You want white and red or even white and blue instead of white and gold? You got it. Want the gold under the white? You got it. How about a 1" goldwall? You got it.

NOPE.

We vulcanize uncured rubber onto the sidewall of a brand name tire.  The tire in the picture is actually a 16" Firestone.  I'll post some more pictures soon.  There is actually a dyslexic vogue coming through the plant tomorrow.  You'll see what I mean when I post pic.

We aren't some bullshit company out to rip people off.  We have a unique process that we have damn near perfected over the last decade to fill a demand.
Vulcanization (or Vulcanisation) refers to a specific curing process of rubber involving high heat and the addition of sulfur or other equivalent curatives. It is a chemical process in which polymer molecules are linked to other polymer molecules by atomic bridges composed of sulfur atoms or carbon to carbon bonds. The end result is that the springy rubber molecules become cross-linked to a greater or lesser extent. This makes the bulk material harder, much more durable and also more resistant to chemical attack. It also makes the surface of the material smoother and prevents it from sticking to metal or plastic chemical catalysts.

This heavily cross-linked polymer has strong covalent bonds, with strong forces between the chains, and is therefore an insoluble and infusible, thermosetting polymer.

The process is named after Vulcan, Roman god of fire.

A vast array of products are made with vulcanized rubber including ice hockey pucks, tires, shoe soles, hoses and many more.
ok.. maybe i'd pay $60 then. :cool:

Come down on the price I'll take a set. $149 for a 13" tire is ridiculous :puffin:

Your shop in the Myrtle Beach area?

I agree that $149 per tire is ridiculous IF you're buying right off the shelf. We modify the tires to create the look you want. It takes time, material, and people to do what we do.

Our plant is about 15 minutes from Myrtle Vegas.
