    Ah is that a cat? I can't even distinguish if he was facing front or if his back is facing us! I wish the pic was much bigger!

    I'm using a 17" inch monitor. I mean the photo is still small when clicked. And I wear eyeglasses too. I was looking for his eyes and I can't see it! :wideeye:

    I was googling a bigger picture for you, but couldn't find it... Eyeglasses are no excuse though! :p

    Not exactly funny, but I wonder if this rides...

    It's ok, at least I now know that it was a gray cat! Anyway, if a wheel that big ever existed in real life, then I'm sure its price would be double (?) than the regular wheel!

    My guess is a big earth mover dump truck. One you might see on big sites. Maybe small mines. That isn't even that big. They get much bigger.

    Wait, haha yeah I am reminded of those large garbage trucks and fire trucks, how could I forget?! :joyful: Oh well, maybe because I rarely see them. But I think that the tires of a bus isn't that big? Anyway, the photo above has really huge tires, I wonder what kind of vehicle is it that uses them?

    Tires on a bus would be around the same size as a fire truck and garbage truck.

    The big tires are on the big construction equipment.

    Ah yes, the demolition equipment! No wonder I forgot that those existed, they're not a common sight to see. I'm also reminded of the large trucks that scoop up the trash in garbage landfills. They're indeed huge! Those wheels must be expensive.

    Yeah it wouldn't be very common unless you worked in that field. Some of the land field front end loaders use big spiked steel wheels. It helps compact the garbage.

    They price of those large wheels would be unreal.

    Yeah I tried googling the prices of those wheels but google doesn't return the results that I want. The info must not be in-demand. :bookworm:

    "The truck uses six tires, either 55/80R63, 56/80R63 or 59/80R63. The tires are manufactured by Michelin, or Bridgestone. They are over 13 feet in diameter, 55 inches wide and weigh more than 10,000 pounds each, and cost in excess of $25,000."

    @Flexin, those tires are huge, some people can spend a lifetime without seeing such things.

    @Rvinyl.com nice gift, I wish someone could offer me something similar. :p

    My goodness, those tires are P1,050,000 pesos already! You can buy a decent house over here with that money. Oh well the owners of those trucks can obviously afford them so they're probably well off already.

    They surely can sidney, those might be the big construction companies that make millions with their projects, so a tire that costs as much as a house is probably nothing to them.

    Yeah they're quite lucky to have money like that. :D I wonder how do they dispose tires that are that big. They probably burn them. :bookworm:
