Who's the biggest tyre maker in the world?

Dunlop? Bridgestone? No, the answer is Lego.

As in the toy maker that has brought out the engineer in children around the world.
It turns out Lego produced 381 million tyres last year and last week it celebrated the 50th anniversary of the first one.
Kit No.400 was released in 1962, featuring the first Lego wheel-and-tyre set. It was such a hit that in 1967 it notched up 820,400 sales.
