The PLA runs on whitewall tires?

The Washington Times ran a story today describing how the Chinese are rapidly building up their armed forces beyond what would be needed to defend themselves or to attack Taiwan. This is, of course, an important story.

However, when I saw the picture below of a Chinese missile-carrying truck, I cracked up. Whitewalls? The People’s Liberation Army has trucks with whitewall tires? Bwahahahahahahaha.
