    Tires do not insulate a car against lightning strikes. If they did, lightning would never strike a car. The electricity travels around the metal body of the car and then jumps the airgap between the body and the ground. The spark has just traveled six miles through the air, a six inch gap is not going to prevent the jump to ground.
