    When a tire blows/loses air what happens?

    I know what happens when a rear tire blows on a rear drive car.

    What happens when the front tire goes on a front drive car, handling-wise.?
    No guesses, please.

    I prefer to hear from people that it actually happened to. Thanks.-Bob

    i was in a friends civic when his tire went flat on the causeway doing about 75-80... it didnt like go crazy the ride was pretty bumpy and just let off and let the car slow down and pull over..he honestly didnt even know what happend until i told him(it was my side tire that went). so i guess he could feel it/hear it but it wasnt like he lost control at all...

    On the way back from North Florida. Front passenger tire on TheRedDragon's car blew out doing 65MPH in the rain. Car started shaking. Held the steering wheel. Pulled over. The rear tire was scary

    It Happened To Me Doing About 70 On I4. Front Driver Side It Wasnt That Bad At All, Except For The Fact That I Didnt Have A Spare And It Was 3am.
    They say when a shark attacks you're supposed to punch him in the face. Then what, poke him in the eye with your nub.

    Usually the side walls are so stiff not much really happens. Steering starts to pull, but nothing violent.

    had my driver side front tire cap off on me doing about 100mph on I-275. i felt the car pull hard to the left i held the wheel as straight as possible i then saw something black flew by past me, it was the capped off tire. i looked back in my rear view and saw cars swerving to avoid the capped off tire. it could have been a much more wilder ride but i did not panic and i maintained control of the car and pulled over. i then made my way to a friends shop where i was loaned a tire to make it home. the tire did not go flat just capped off so all the steel belts was showing.

    It's the rear tires you have to worry about blowing out on a front wheel drive car. There is a good chance you will loose control.

    i had a blow out once in my old jetta..65 in heavy traffic middle lane on a 3 lane highway...it made the car pull right and shake really bad..fucked up the rim and part of the fender but it could have been worst. if no one was on the road i wouldnt have been 1/2 as scared
    you see its not the blood you spill that gets you what you want, its the blood you share. your family, your friendships, your community. these are the most valuable things a man could have
