    I'm wondering if it's a real tire. Notice the shield logos on the tire tread that match the one on the rider's lower back and the back of the bike. This is for a company called Rev'it!. My guess is it's either computer graphics merged onto a dunlop tire or a one-off that dunlop made for this promo.

    Edit: It's the latter. https://www.revitsport.com/en/blog/r...-custom-build/

    It's round (kinda) and it's black. It's a tire.

    Haha. I meant I was wondering if it really existed in the world or just on a piece of paper. Pretty cool that the company really had it made. Interesting build in the link.

    When I first looked at the picture, I thought the tire had hundreds of little suction cups
