As a crash barrier at race tracks?

They certainly aren't for use on automobiles.

You could probably mount these on the Batmobile for street use.

These are still not wide enough for me. I'll wait for another year or two until they come up with 405/10s. That is the only thing keeping me from going faster on the track; I've got the rest all figured out.
