- What are LEGO rubber bands made of? 2 answers
LEGO is the No.1 tire maker in the world by number of unit. It produce the same number of tires in a year as both Michelin & Bridgestone together, the 2 biggest tire manufacturers. A "real" vehicle tire is made of a mix of Natural Rubber (coming from a tree: Hevea Brasiliensis) and Synthetic Rubber (coming from oil). Is this the same for the LEGO tire or is it only Synthetic rubber that is used?
