Apparently this is the summer of Hooniverse giveaways. We handed out a bunch of gear from Meguiar’s. I sent someone the new 3M Paint Defender to check out. Now, however, we’re on to our best contest yet because the winner will end up with a set of new rubber shoes for their ride. No, we didn’t team up with Sears to give away the cheapest set of 175s they have left over from 1982. Michelin stepped up and wants us to hand over their all-new Pilot Sport A/S 3, which is the same tire I sampled earlier in the year back in New Orleans.
We’re not simply going to give these to the first person to photoshop me in some ridiculous manner. Although, if you want to do that you know it’s always highly encouraged around these parts. For this competition, however, we are giving away the tires to the first person who correctly answers three questions. The questions are below the jump and, if you know this group of readers, you know you need to act fast to find the answers. There’s also a video down there to tell you a bit more about the tires.
Okay, here are your three questions:
- What unique, sustainable oil is used in the helio compound of the PS A/S 3 to allow greater flexibility in low temperatures while maintaining rigidity in higher temperatures?
- When was The Michelin Man first introduced in Michelin advertisements?
- After a careful study of market trends and monitoring the actions of its two major global competitors, Michelin made the decision in 1989 to purchase which tire company?
There you go… first person to get all three correct wins the rubber. If it happens to be the very first comment posted, so be it.
