Chinese tire company The Doublestar Group from the Shandong Province have developed a new way of adding color into the life of your tires that we think you’re really going to enjoy. Lin Xiangyang, chief engineer of Doublestar Tire Corporation, explains that beyond the ornamental, these color tires have two primary functions that enhance the performance of your vehicle.
