One of the most popular roadside attractions in the United States, Uniroyal Giant Tire has been a landmark for more than four decades now. Located on Interstate 94, near the airport, the mammoth tire was built as a Ferris wheel for New York World Fair in 1964. With a seating capacity of 96 people, the giant wheel catered to more than two million people that year, including Jacqueline Kennedy. It was later moved to Allen Park, MI, where it still stands about eight stories high, drawing many tourists each year.
