Have you ever wondered those speeding yet secure racing tires are created with such precision and detail? While that mystery hasn’t been put on public display yet, you can find out how a bejeweled tire comes to life. To celebrate 75 years of the British Formula 3 Championship, the sole tire suppliers for the last 30 years Cooper tires have been commissioned to make something special. So they called upon London Jewelers FK Diamonds to design these studded wheels.
The diamonds and Swarovski crystals were placed using a Cooper logo template, which was then manually stuck to the tires once at a time with a strong adhesive, forming the name of the company. The ready tyres where then bolted on to the Carlin driver, Rupert Svendsen–Cook’s car.
