Welcome to the Motor City
The Uniroyal Tire on I-94 is the iconic symbol of Detroit as we zoom by on our way to or from the airport. It has been there in Allen Park since 1965. Prior to its installation on the expressway, the 8-story structure was used as a ferris wheel for the New York State Fair. If you look closely, you'll see a giant nail stuck in the top, representing the self-sealing leaks of Uniroyal.
