Default Dunlop tires for FREE !!!

Need a New Set of Dunlops? Just Get a Tattoo
Written By: Phil Floraday
Filed Under: Etc., Marketing/Advertising October 30th, 2007 7:44 PM


Only in Vegas… Dunlop is offering a free set of four tires for folks willing to don the Dunlop logo or tread pattern for life. Tattoo artists are on hand to ink the company’s logo on your body. The tattoos are crowd favorites. We hear the line starts at 8:00 a.m. and the first reservations are taken an hour later. Dunlop officials expect all available spots, roughly 20 per day, to be spoken for within five minutes. We hear one guy did it just to get a free tattoo and he was amazed that there were some free tires in the deal.

The Tire Rack has absolutely no affiliation with this promotion ... just passing along the information

Would a picture of a gorgeous (near) naked lady with a tiny little Dunlap ribbon around count?

Or replace gorgeous naked lady with anything, just so the word Dunlap is integrated into it somewhere?

is this for real ?? they are actualling encouraging people to deface their bodies for a set of tires ?

you know who will take "advantage" of this ? poor people who can't otherwise afford a set of tires. I wonder what Dunlop would give you for a kidney or your left nut ?

please tell me it was a joke. I can't imagine a corporation stooping to this level.......... wait a minute, yes I can.

I might consider doing it if you got free tires for life, not just one set. Seems reasonable if you're going to be advertising for them everyday for the rest of your life.

If you trade up to the kidney level, you get four wheel alignments for life! Haven't checked into the left nut level yet! RP

If Subaru was handing out S202's one day I'd give my left nut, I'm sure some would do the same.

This is rather low of Dunlop and its not "free". You have to agree to getting inked and if you want to remove it down the road.... $$$$.
