    I just don't have the tv to tell but it's bugging the hell out of me. When Prime Transforms for the first time and you see his wheels lock into place, what are his tires branded as? Is it possible to read them?

    I guess some fans (like me) were too blinded by how awesome Prime transformed to notice his wheels' brand.

    ...Firestone? Goodyear? I dunno.

    I just liked how his rims were chrome in some scenes, and gloss black in others.

    Not gloss black, just dirty. The second of two intentional plot holes in the movie (the other being Barricade's dissapearence): Clean robots just don't look real enough. Want proof, watch the two-second sceen during the AB's conversation showing BB being zapped. He's spotless to keep better continuity with the dummy, yet he looks totaly fake.

    :p  Oh yeah! I forgot I was gonna do something! Hold on a sec...

    EDIT: B... something. Or R. Maybe it is Cybertronian Radials? I'll try another scene.

    EDIT 2: One word on it is long, but blurry. Could be "Cybertronian".

    Well, whatever's on the tires, chalk it up as an egg, because Prime has nothing written on them past that point, so obviously, it's a fan-nod.
