William pawahhhhhh

How to: Change a flat tyre at LDP

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 …

William insisted that he should be photographed. So that’s what i did … i whipped out my handphone, snapped a couple of shots and mms-ed to a bunch of people @_@

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/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.

  6. that’s actually a very good point. i never thought of the severe danger it could have caused and i doubt my fellow friends thought the same.

    that’s definitely something i should add in my entry. thanks for the feedback, really appreciate it :)

  11. Over or under-inflating tyres is likely to seriously impair their performance and may prejudice the safe use of the vehicle. Over-inflation increases overall tyre diameter, decreases the amount of tread in contact with the road, decreases sidewall flexibility and affects road-adhesion. Under-inflation decreases overall tyre diameter, increases sidewall flexion, generates higher tyre operating temperatures and difficult vehicle handling characteristics. Running an under-inflated tyre may cause premature tyre failure. Both over and under-inflation adversely affect tyre life.
