UPDATED: Check the bottom of the entry
On the way to the Curve, William asked if i could feel his rear left wheel wobbling and i said yes but it wasn’t that obvious unless if i wasn’t been told about. So the assumption was his car needs allignment.
But we thought wrong and on the way back from the Curve the inevitable happened …
The tyre blew and the next thing we knew, we were on the side of LDP just before Western Digital. The last time i encountered a ‘phailed’ tyre was with Bernard and all we did was called up David, LOL. But this time around William single handedly change it himself. Steven, Jess and I just stood there like dodo birds, hahaha.
Probably William was trying to show his macho-ness …
We were stranded for barely half an hour before moving again.
Moral of the story: Please please check/service all tyres and not only the front pair and please, if you noticed that the tyre is getting bald, change it -_-”
P/S: Nicollete thanks for the passes !
P/P/S: I received a comment not too long back and i thought it was worth adding it to the entry as everyone should know the danger of changing tyre on a highway or even a normal trunk road. Thank you anonymous

What you did was very dangerous. Many people have died from what you guys did. You should never change a tyre on the highway, not even on the emergency lane. A car or another vehicle travelling at high speed would hit you.
The advisable thing to do was to continue driving (even if it means destroying your wheel/tyre) off the highway to a safe location, then only change your tyre. At least you gain a life.
