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...
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.
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..****ed 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
