Q Celsius tires offer extra grip via spikes

By James Kwok | April 07, 2008
Life imitating art? Actually, look for more Bond-esque technology in the form of retractable-stud snow tires. At the flip of a switch from the driver's console, studs spring out of the tire for extra grip, and retract with another flip of the switch. Treating their own invention as a tip of the hat to the superspy franchise, the tires are slated to come out in test markets in summer, under the name "Q Celsius" from the Q Tires brand.
