Video Of A Suburban Casually Plowing Down The Highway With No Front Driver Side Wheel

June 27, 2018

Note: Some appropriate cursing.

This is a video captured by a man listening to NPR in a rental vehicle of a Suburban plowing down the highway with no driver side front wheel. And it's not like he's driving on the rim either, there is NOTHING there. Now I've gone down enough police chase video rabbit holes on Youtube before bed to know that is not safe. Just what the hell is he doing? Obviously, a hit and run joyriding in a friend's Suburban he borrowed, presumably "just to make a couple runs to Home Depot." So, if you're this guy, here's what you do: park the Suburban back at your buddy's house like nothing happened. Then, when he sees what happened and calls you over to talk about it, you go over there, you look him dead in the eye, and you tell him you never even drove the truck, that neighborhood kids must have slashed the tire. You just need to realize though that at this very moment you may lose a friendship and/or have to fight an angry man with a tire iron.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Clint, who, like this man, is convinced spare tires are just a way for tire companies to make more money.

    I'd definitely bet entire nickels that the upper ball joint failed. There doesn't appear to be a wheel or spindle up front. When that upper ball joint fails on these vehicles and the Tahoe, Blazer, and similar suspension setups you end up with your wheel bouncing past you on the road. I've seen a few of these outside my parents' house growing up and had a few friends who were Chevy fanatics who knew if you don't do ball joints before they start making noise you're definitely gonna end up stranded.

    Also, he's vertical filming while driving, in the Left/Fast lane, when clearly the right lane is open. He's even getting passed by a truck in the right lane. Just one of my peeves while driving...

    I would like to hear about your other pet peeves.

  • Darkedge

    And the bloke filming it is paying loads of attention to the road while he waves his smartphone around... geez seems like that state has a surplus of stupidity.

    I actually appreciated the vertical video on this one because it detracted from the inane commentary this mental troglodyte was providing.

    The suburban isn't riding on a rim, there is no wheel of any sort in that wheel well. The Suburban looks like it is riding on the control arm.

    Also, vertical video?! WTF?

  • Jenness

    I love the ramrod straightness of the drivers posture with that one arm on the wheel. Like " I just don't care!" combined with "I'm almost at the exit...just...one...more....mile!" hahahahaha

    But who got the rim job?

    Looks like me in Grand Theft Auto.

  • Mark

    Yeah, my car ends up looking like that after a while of "i don't want to drive across town one more time"

    Was not late for work, however.

    "On the next episode of When Jesus Taking the Wheel Goes Wrong..."

    Filming while driving...

    Vertical video...

    Hey, it happens. Sometimes you’re in a rush, and leave the house before realizing you forgot one of your wheels, happens to the best of us.

  • Big Dog on Krampus

    how else is he gonna get sub urban without first getting so close to the ground?

  • David Ray

    Dude should've followed him off the exit ramp; he needs gas soon anyway...

  • Wooder

    Looks like a hit and run, and he's trying to get away but there's a skit mark to where he stops! I don't think he's going to Grandma's house.
