    That’s pretty cool. I’ve been driving by the Goodrich plant nearby my whole life and even know quite a few people that work there and have never had a clue as to how they are made.

    I can understand that. A lot of the manufactures use proprietary ingredients and manufacturing processes for certain portions of the tire - such as the bead bundle.

    It was!

    Even being in the industry I learned that the color lines are to identify the rubber compound ingredients. I always assumed they were for inventory identification purposes

    I was lucky enough to see that first hand when I was on the fire department we would preplan there once a year and had a couple fires out there over my 16 years. It’s really interesting and very dirty out there

    I would imagine it to be a dirty process as well.

    For some reason we can't find a video on discount codes but we would be happy to explain them when we have a sale.

    Thank you all for your comments.

    Watching that and realizing that they have to have a different process (cutting widths) and different molds for each tire, it makes the prices we pay per tire seem really cheap.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
