Beijing -- China's Doublestar group has started making tyres in colours such as red, yellow and green. A Chinese TV show reported Lin Xiangyang, Chief Engineer, Doublestar Tire Corporation saying â€œColor tyres have two advantages. The first is the new materials they use reduce rolling resistance by 20 percent, meaning more oil can be saved. The other is their reduced braking distance, which provides safer driving."
New Tang Dynasty Television television said, "The Doublestar tyres are bleached and then dyed. Two years were spent figuring out how to best produce the tyres. Every day 20 000 are being made."
