You can kill any discussion by mentioning issues that are bigger.

I guess it is OK to roll coal because it kills less people than heart disease.
IS kills less people than heart disease, etc.
(Marine wildlife, if it had knowledge of the issue, might value its own mass extinction of higher importance than human heart disease btw)

Your choice of tire will have very little effect on heart disease, but it could effect microplastics pollution - more than anything else.

If it is true and if we had the data to make that choice.
Is it?
Do we really have a choice?
I'd love to ignore it all, but I'd rather be certain it is indeed doing no harm.
2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.17 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.

Investors woes:
