Astounding moment a car is driven on its rims on a busy road after its tyres exploded
- A motorist was filmed driving on their car’s rims
- Its drive-side tyres had burst on the Gold Coast
- It was filmed chugging along a road in Coomera
A motorist has been caught on camera continuing to drive their vehicle on a busy road after the car’s tyres had burst.
The lopsided LDV T60 Max was filmed from a vehicle behind as it rolled along on its rims down a major road in Coomera on the Gold Coast last weekend.
The vision showed the driver sailing along with two of the driver’s side tyres busted as shredded rubber flapped about.
Onlookers said the grey vehicle swerved on the road, endangered surrounding cars.
Footage of the bizarre driving was uploaded to social media on Tuesday with some commenters justifying the actions of the driver.

‘Maybe they hit one of the many pot holes,’, one person wondered.
‘He can’t change both of them I guess and maybe he is struggling with current financial problems and can’t afford a tow truck,’ another suggested.
‘I suggest mandatory roadworthies with every car registration renewal, like they do in NSW…it will keep the defective cars off the roads,’ one Queenslander wrote.
‘Rising food prices, higher home rates, council fees – its a wonder we’re all not doing this,’ said another.
But others chose to see the lighter side of the faulty vehicle.
‘Who knew, time for a wheel balance,’ one sarcastic commenter wrote.
‘Still got some tread on the tyres,’ one more said, while another called the driver’s eagerness to get from A to B, ‘perseverance’.
