Tires with Plastic Covers - why?


Share
Pardon my ignorance but I really have no idea what is happening here.

I don’t know with you but I am really curious to know - what is the point of covering your car tires (all four of them) with plastic and seal it with packaging tape?

Along with friends during the long break from work, we saw this odd-looking van parked outside their condominium. Out loud ,we all made guesses that would put reasons to why the tires were covered with plastics.

1. New tires and they don't want dirt in it? (opinion is very Jessica Simpson!)
2. The parents were out of the country and they made sure kuya (Brother) will not use it? (probably but very barrio-tic)
3. They don't like dogs pissing on them? (they can still! duh)
4. vehicle will not be used for a while so they protected the rubbers from heat? (too scientific!)
5. They painted their mugs hot pink? (can be true if owner were gay!)
6. Or the owner just totally lost it? (My comment of course!)

We all get to finish our cigarettes but not the riddle.

But knowing me - I really need to know!

We asked the guard on duty and he was really a big help (so we thought), "Sir, matagal na poh yan jan eh. di ko alam". (Sir, it's been there for a while. I don't know).

We can't blame him, of course - it is not his duty to answer such questions. Besides, there is thinking involve so let's not pressure him.

We left instead and drove in silence still not knowing why all tires were covered with plastics.

Is it done while driving the car?It's questionable for me but the owner has the right with his/her car.

Since the car has been stored a very long time, they are clearly trying to protect the tires. Tires that are never driven on will eventually dry rot if not protected from the elements.

Do i really have to cover the tire with plastics to protect them if ever?I do a regular checking of my tires before drive for assurance that, it will be good while on the road.I see the purpose and it's for good.

I think it's for the protection of tires but i wonder how it was made covering them with plastic and tapes.
