Man Replaces Car's Rear Tires With Ones Made Out Of Coil Springs, Drives Surprisingly Well

August 2, 2018

This is a video from one of the Russian automotive mechanics of Garage 54 (and Team 32 apparently) replacing the rear tires of a car with ones made out of heavy duty coil springs. Surprisingly they fare pretty well, which is a lot more than I can say for the the tire I used the last time I got a flat. "You drove all the way home on the rim." By the way I'm looking for a new car insurance company.

This actually ain't too bad. Just like on normal tires and even a bit more supple. Wow I'm loving this. The rear axle is really nice and soft. This is lovely ...it's so nice and soft I like it. Only problem is it's a bit noisy.

So noise is the only complaint? No problem, just cruise around with earbuds in like half the drivers I see around here. Oh -- and make sure to check your phone as often as possible to keep your distraction levels at max. You won't even be able to hear me honking or swearing I'll eat whoever you're texting.

Keep going for the video (but skip to 3:00 if you just want to see the car being driven). I just love that soothing English translation.

Thanks to Robby, for inspiring me to finally start that GoFundMe page so I can build a monster truck under the guise of a new community center.

    I like how they weld without any Masks/Eye Protection/Cover

    I've seen some older guys do a quick weld by getting the wire in position and then vaguely holding a hand somewhere in front of their eyes. But the open-toed sandals were a new one for me.

    Tearin up the damn road

  • Jenness

    I did notice the mud chunks and tracks behind the vehicle. This would be murder on a regular road.

  • TheQiwiMan

    I didn’t realize spring tires were the culprit. DAMN YOU RUSSIANS!!

    Trump's fan club has gone full Russian. They've started emu-lating them from the vodka drinks to flag to insane driving. I, for one, am impressed for their dedication to him and the fully expected reduction in life span.

    I thought hipsters and college kids hated Trump

    Check out the image of 2 trumpers in a "Rather Russian than Democrat"t-shirt. They look ready for their liver failure / heart attack.

  • GeneralDisorder

    Well that makes sense. Those guys look like they've been practicing their "drinking russian" game for a long time now.

    Edit: FWIW at least Russians aren't into identity politics. Tough call. Would I rather be a hard partying homophobic Russian or a whiny shitbag "demo-rat" pandering to the IDpol faggots.

    I'll stick to being a scumbag centrist.
