Tires -- and tire icons -- have been around for more than 100 years. Very few tire brands have lasted that long; even fewer tire icons have survived.

Two symbols, however, have stood the test of time on a global basis. Groupe Michelin's Michelin Man and Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co.'s Wingfoot.

Which is older? Which is more iconic? Find out by reading Modern Tire Dealer Editor Bob Ulrich's latest blog, "The last tire icons standing: the Michelin Man versus Wingfoot."

Which tire icons do you remember fondly? Share your thoughts by leaving a comment!
