Well, it's not magnetism. I think however that the use of kitchen waste to construct a tyre has accidently reproduced an ancient Wiccan compound previously used to summon flinty cave spirits against Roman armies.
The trick will be to get Continential to stop stirring the eggshells/potatoes/human hair "widdershins" - that is against the direction of movement of the sun. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Widdershins
If they stirred their unholy brew the other way, it makes a tasty soup instead.
