This is also why your automobile is one of the safest places to be during a lighting storm!
The very short distance from the chassis to the ground is miniscule comparted the distance the lightning jumps from the sky so the rubber really doesn't do all that much. The reason the automobile is safe is because it forms a faraday cage.
