    the purpose of human existence has reached the end, the acme, the final answer.

    to produce hello kitty tread tires.

    I can now cease to exist.

    That's hilarious. Rather obviously made for a kid's bike though.

    I dunno about black, though. The Hello Kitty design just screams for a bolder color.

    Designer treads -- the perfect complement to designer "threads"! I'd prefer an M.C. Escher tessallation -- the unicorns or the reptiles would be cool.

    Those tires in 16in with white walls, and a pink folder with mint green accouterments. *gasp*

    Seriously, I want!!!

    Hello Kitty won't look so good after you run over a dog turd.

    They are truly fabulous. I want some. They'd be better in pink, but that chic black hello kitty look is cool too.
    I'll try anything...twice.

    You could paint the tires white or pink and wipe off the paint while it's still wet, leaving the paint inside the crevices. That would really make the hello kitty tread pop!!!

    Now you're talking.....

    Of course, it would be cheaper on paint just to use a small brush to pick out the Hello Kitties....

    Oh man, my girls would go nuts over those! Last year we were in Osaka, Japan and spent maybe two hours at the Hello Kitty store in the Namba District. 4 floors of kitty heaven (for me - kitty hell).

    It was just before Halloween, and they had this 7 foot tall Kitty dressed in a goolish costume. I nicknamed her "Evil Kitty" and we laugh about it a year later.
