Gerry johansson - Tyre Choice


Tyre Choice [taɪə tʃɔɪs] is a term mostly used in the world of motor racing. To make the right tyre choice for the circumstances – at the right time – is essential for success. It can make the difference between winning and being lapped by the winner.

Choosing Tyres [chü-ziŋ tʃɔɪs] choosing the ‘right’ tyres. Different tyres can be right for different purposes. For instance, the American artist Robert Rauschenberg choose a high profile cross-ply tyre to fit around a goat in his installation “Monogram” from 1955–1959.

Getting Tyred [gä-tən tajɚd] having the tyres fitted by someone else. If “tire”, the American spelling of tyre, beware of misunderstanding.
