F1: 1800 tyres scrapped

1800 F1 tyres are being scrapped because of race cancellation as some being removed from rims may result in damage.They will be used as fuel in a UK cement factory so it will not be a complete waste.

I wouldn't mind having one of those. Would look pretty sweet on my wall in the basement.

Too bad it's no 2021 b/c the F1 18 inch wheels would have fit the Red Roadster....just one problem....even with a wheel offset that would allow the behemoth tires to not touch the interior of the wheel wells and suspension, the wheels/tires would hang out far enough that I'd need to drive in two lanes

You've got a point there, would be two lanes and a bit more and don't even mention DAS...
