This Is What Happens When Driving With A Flat Tire

I am pretty sure I am not the only one who have experienced this before. But for those who are fairly new to driving like me, a piece of advice based on my experience, NEVER EVER drive your car if one of the tires is flat! Always check your tires if you're heading out to make sure not one is flat or low. If there is a low tire, make sure you pump it with air. I am not an expert, just trying to save you troubles later!

Anyhow, so this is exactly what happened to one of our tires. Didn't know that one was low on air. As I was driving approximately about a mile from where we live, the car just started bouncing, didn't know what it was at first. Then my mother-in-law mentioned that it might be a flat tire and sure enough when I got out it was indeed a flat tire. But it didn't look the way it look in the picture, the tire was still intact. So my mother-in-law told me to drive back to her house so we can put air in it which was a big mistake because by driving with a flat tire, I worsened the problem! Well, I didn't know what to do and just did what an experienced driver for over 50 years told me to do. I guess she did not know better either! LOL! So the outcome of that mistake is the picture above!

Anyway, once we were at my mother-in-law's driveway, I immediately called my husband and told him what had happened. I was so worried that he'll get mad at me, thankfully he didn't! He just told me that he wished I had called him immediately when I found out that the tire was flat and he could have fixed the problem without costing us any money. The problem was beyond his control once I drove it back to my mother-in-law's house and had to take it repair shop to have another tire replaced. Thankfully, it only cost us $25 to have another one put on. Good thing the rim wasn't damage or it would have cost us a lot more! So I learned a lesson and I also learned how to change a tire which wasn't hard at all! Everybody who drives should learn how to do a basic task like changing tires! Who knows you might need it in the future!
