Did You Know? (Tires… Who? What? Read and it will make sense):
If you could win a million dollars just by answering the question “Who is the world’s largest manufacturer of tires?” what would your guess be? Michelin? Goodyear? Bridgestone? Those are all good tries, but they’re all wrong. Surprised?
Well you’ll be even more surprised to know which company does make the most tires every year. It’s LEGO. That’s right. Since 2011, LEGO has held the Guinness World Record for being the world’s largest tire manufacturer. “The largest annual volume toy tire manufacturer ever,” and though it includes the specification of “toy,” the numbers surpass regular tire manufacturers. This is really a bit of a misnomer.
