It’s not exactly practical, but the stunt is an especially cool one: Lexus commissioned a team of ice sculptors to recreate the NX's tires and wheels with ice. The project took three months, and before the ice tires were mounted, the vehicle itself was kept in a freezing chamber for five full days at a temperature of -22 degrees Fahrenheit. Not only were the five-twin-spoke alloy wheel and Yokohama winter tires recreated with incredible precision, the ice tires were able to support the NX's 2.2-ton mass without shattering.
