Uniroyal Giant Tire

Higbie, Tobias

A landmark of the Michigan automotive industry, this Uniroyal Giant Tire looms over a curve on Interstate 94 outside of Detroit. Standing 80 feet tall, the tire was originally a Ferris Wheel at the 1965 World’s Fair in New York. In 1989, the French tire company Michelin purchased Uniroyal and its partner firm B.F. Goodrich.
