    Meanwhile at Lexus..

    Apparently they've designed a new invisible tire system. This guy passed me at 75 MPH this afternoon on Interstate 90 just east of Cleveland. I honked and pointed and he just kind of shrugged as if to say, "Hey, what can I do?"

    Dude, where's my tire.jpg

    My first thought as well..... Probably the Service Department taking it for a test drive to check out a vibration in the steering wheel.

    Only at Cadillac would they do that. Then come back and tell you they are aftermarket tires so they have no idea what the problem is.

    Somebody must have told him he had "Run-Flat Wheels" instead of "Run-Flat Tires".

    Did the car have sparks flying from the rim? I'm surprised it could take so much heat

    He probably had a fat passenger in the back seat on the left side.
