As cars continue to become more and more economy tools to get from point A to B people will treat them with less and less care. So you get roads full of cars with failing or non-operational safety systems, completely bald tires, and inattentive drivers.

Not that sports car drivers are any better, whenever I walk around the city I'm amazed how many nice cars with bald tires there are. Or BMWs on NANKANG or whatever the heck discount tires they sell at Pepboys.
Not really like this is a trend or anything. There have always been cars on worthless tires for decades and decades.

P.S. The M3 rotor is as big as my stock OEM wheels on my E30
