Video of a Tire Explosion on a Taiwanese Highway

When we think of a tire problem, most of the time, we automatically think about a flat, which is a routine problem that can be fixed quickly. If your car has run-flats, you can fix this problem by driving to the nearest tire shop, but for most of use we would have to pull over to the side of the road and swap it out with a spare.

A flat tire is one thing, but a blowout or explosion is completely different and a much more dangerous situation altogether, even more so when you’re talking about a large wheel on a heavy commercial vehicle.

The following video demonstrates this when a medium-sized truck’s tire explodes on a highway near Hsinchu, a city in nothern Taiwan.
