The World’s Most Expensive Tires Cost More than a Lamborghini Aventador
For about $30,000, you can fit your Bugatti Veyron with a fresh set of rubber. That’s pretty damn expensive for something most consumers only pay a few hundred dollars for. But the Veyron’s tires are nothing compared to the tires you’re looking at right here. Officially certified by the Guinness Book of World Records as the “World’s Most Expensive Tires,” a pair of these will set you back $600,000. For tires. Naturally, they’re not just any set. The rubber is produced by Dubai-based Z Tyre, and each one comes encrusted in diamonds, decorated by Italian artisan jewelers. The set is then returned to Dubai, where they are coated in gold leaf by the same craftspeople responsible for the presidential palace in Abu Dhabi.

For all that work, they truthfully don’t look much different than any Goodyear you might see on the street, barring the gold “Z” logo and checkered pattern. But at least there’s a silver gold lining through all of this; all the profits from the sale of these absurdly expensive tires will go to Zenises Foundation, which “focuses on improving access to execution across the world,” according to the release.
No word on what car these tires were made for specifically, but you have to imagine it’s something with a similar price tag, if not more.
