WELD Awards $1,000 Prize to Kansas City Art Institute Student in Wheel Design Contest

Kansas City, Mo. – WELD has awarded a $1,000 prize to Kansas City Art Institute (KCAI) student Noah Geiger for his directional on-spoke wheel design. Geiger captured the top prize in the first annual WELD KCAI Performance Design Challenge contest, which was open to students enrolled in the virtual sculpture design program at KCAI. The contest was conducted in conjunction with the KCAI Art of the Car Concours event held yesterday at the school campus in Kansas City, Mo., of which WELD is a sponsor.

Geiger, a native of Rapid City, S.D., is studying sculpture at KCAI and will be a junior in the fall. Geiger designed his wheel to be coated in black except for the exterior face, which is polished.

“My design follows the ideas of fractals and an understanding of the rotation around a single point in relation to the drive of forward progression,” said Geiger. “Being that this is a directional wheel there are two sets of opposing wheels that work together.”

THE NEWEST INNOVATION IN TIRE CUSTOMIZATION

TIRE PENZ
THE NEWEST INNOVATION IN TIRE CUSTOMIZATION
By Guys Who Ride

A trio of siblings living near Boulder, Colorado discovered the market for a tire paint pen was extremely limited and those that were available simply did not live up to their promise; paint that did not stick to rubber, quality so poor that the paint would fall off or wilt in the sun, red paint that would become a pinkish rust in just a day and white paint that disintegrated after one use! “We wanted a paint that worked and was worthy of gracing our tires. “ So we set off to make their own tire paint. In 2012, after months of tinkering in the garage and dozens of tires later, Tire Penz, LLC was born.
