The Z1 tires were designed in a collaboration between Dubai-based 'Z Tyre' and jeweler Joaillier Prive -- creating the world's most expensive luxury tires.
It is fitting that these luxury tires were designed by a company in the highly expensive city of Dubai. The tires are thin and minimal and do not look overtly luxurious but are actually adorned with 24 karat gold and diamond stones. A set of these tires was recently sold for $600,000 -- setting a Guinness World Records' recognized standard for the world's most expensive tires.
By donating the proceeds of that money to the Zenises Foundation, which focuses on improving access to education, the creators of these luxury tires have avoided any backlash that comes with selling tires that cost more than what most people across the world pay for a home.
