Hello Kitty fans will be purring at the prospect of these novelty car tires themed on the ubiquitous character.

Nexen Tire Japan Inc. announced it is planning to release the “kawaii” product range in or around the summer of 2018.

The tire features Hello Kitty’s face, ribbon and logo in pink in the rubber part of the sidewall.

Available on a made-to-order basis, the tire will be offered in many sizes.

Production volume, distribution and price have yet to be determined.

Nexen Tire Corp. is an industry leader in South Korea that supplies original equipment tires for Germany’s Porsche and other automakers. Its sales subsidiary Nexen Tire Japan was founded last fall, with Nexen taking a 51-percent stake and Toyota Tsusho Corp. 49 percent.
