Producer of the Most Tires in the World

by | Nov 27, 2017


According to the Guiness Book of World Records, the producer of the most tires in the world is Legos with over 300 million produced each year (nearly 900,000 per day!). As a comparison, Bridgestone, Michelin and Goodyear each produce between 150-200 million tires per year.

The largest tire produced by the company has a diameter of 10.7 centimeters, while the smallest is 14.4 millimeters. Until the invention of the LEGO wheel and tires in 1962, children simply simulated wheels with LEGO bricks.

Soon after Guiness acknowledged that Legos was the largest manufacturer, an article in Bloomberg helpfully noted: “There is not much boasting done by LEGO concerning handling, traction, tread wear or braking distance. Maybe the company figures its production numbers speak for themselves. Freed of any type of regulation, LEGO enjoys advantages over the better known tire manufacturers. The biggest advantage is the fact it manufactures the cars and wheels on which its tires are fitted.”
