So here's my image, its a tyre on a tyre. LEGO® produces a staggering 318 million TYRES a year. That's over 870,000 a day. This makes it the largest TYRE manufacturer in the world by a very large margin.
Some other interesting facts about LEGO®
Before the LEGO wheel was introduced, some LEGO sets included pre-moulded miniature cars, or children simulated wheels by using their LEGO brick collection.
The first LEGO wheel was included in set No.400, which launched in 1962. It was the best selling set in 1967 selling 820,400 boxes.
The smallest LEGO wheel stands 14.4mm high and belongs to a small two-seater car.
The largest LEGO wheel stands at 10.7cm high and features on the Power Puller, launched in 2000.
The big TYRE is one of a pair I have liberated from work that have been dumped there. They are going to be recycled as plant containers.
