I'm willing to bet that it is only a matter of time before all affluent consumers around the world modify the tires on their cars to look something like the Cooper F3 Diamond Tire. The Cooper F3 Diamond Tire is a one-off set of tires commisioned by Cooper and made by London-based jeweler JK Diamonds. The tires were made to celebrate the diamond (30th) anniversary of Cooper's partnership with the Formula 3 series.

Diamonds and crystals were stuck to the tire using a strong glue and were then covered using a Cooper nameplate. The Cooper F3 Diamond Tires were fitted to Rupert Svendsen-Cook's race car where they were rolled out for a photo op. It is highly unlikely that these tires will ever see anything resembling racing, but it will be interesting to see how the world reacts to the first-ever diamond tired. I wouldn't be surprised to see these alongside spinning rims and "iced out" grills sometime in the near future.
