Imagine if you will, driving up the road, a line of traffic going in both directions, when suddenly this rogue tire is freewheeling down the road towards you. That’s right, just the tire, no car. We swerved left, the tire changed direction. We veered right, the tire changed direction again. Nowhere to go – ditch on the right, cars on the left, and the tire is coming down the middle of our lane right towards us. Absolutely nothing to do but slam on the breaks and wait for it to hit us, which it did. The Flex didn’t fare too badly, though you’d never know it by the estimate to fix it. The three-wheeled jeep stopped on the other side of the road actually looked sadder. I can’t imagine what the poor guy was thinking as his wheel sailed past him and his jeep skidded down the road, sparks flying as metal hit pavement.
