    first I thought they were stone wheels off the Flintstone’s car, but then I thought Mobius Strips.
    THEN I saw the license plate.

    @ekw

    You’ve no idea how hard it was to draw Möbius strip tires.

    By a strange coincidence, my daily email from Weird Universe had George Hart’s pictures of how to make a Möbius bagel. (http://www.georgehart.com/bagel/bagel.html)

    Actually, they would still wear out, but on one side only. Of course, a regular tire only wears out on one side also…

    I wonder what Möbius himself and Firestone would think of it? Anyone for experimental tire design?

    NPR’s “Car Talk” had a puzzler a few months ago that had to do with a design for a serpentine belt that would last twice as long as the current model. A Mobius strip configuration was the answer. Love the license plate, too!

    @Daoine – That’s the first thing I thought of when I saw the strip, though I heard the puzzler years ago.


    I’m only an occasional listener of “Car Talk,” but I remember that one because it was one of the few I figured out. (Not that I put a whole lot of effort into the puzzlers. I usually think about them as long as the segment lasts, then forget about it altogether, unless I happen to be listening when they give the solution.)


    @Jonathan Lemon – All that work paid off; the tires look like they took a few seconds to draw. It’s hard to make something complicated look easy and natural. My compliments.


    Did you hear this joke on “The Big Bang Theory”:


    Why did the chicken cross the Moebius strip?
    To get to the same side.

    Optical illusions might “last” but they aren’t really functional.

    Au contraire, moebius strip conveyor belts and other fabric applications have been around for quite a while.
