Driving along the A127 last night ........ and it's as if I could feel the car pulling over to the left.

I thought "could be the camber in the road" so I carried on driving ...........

Then it got worse, and I thought "this can't be right" ..........

Droveon a bit more, and every time I accelerated the car moved it's self over to the left !!!

Then ....... this vibrating noise all around the car ............. yeah you guessed it !

I pulled over at the garage just a few yards ahead .......... and the result ?

(I can imagine you flooring the car to find out what was wrong... :blush: )

Exactly what I tried a few times ...............

Forgot to mention, when I stopped, I got out of the car .... walked around the back, and there was smoke coming out of the tyre !!! and the smell of burning rubber was just awful !! :sick:

I'm fine though ! thanks for all the kind words ............ :blush:

I know exactly what caused this :huh:

.................A..............

........STOP STICK......

Ahmet how fast were you going :excl:

Seriously though this goes open some questions..

Is it the fact that the Lexus is so well built it can handle exemplary even with a blown tyre.

Is this a good or bad thing?

The fact the tyre was smoking means you were driving on it for some time unaware

Is this a good or bad thing?

Open to debate i think.

Anyway i feel only a Policeman like you would drive his car at speed ( legal obviously ) and 'wonder' the car feels 'unsure at the rear' then using 'skid pan training' TEST IT then in full Drift and the left rear on fire decide to stop...... 'OH A PUNCHURE' :whistling:

Wonder if this had anything to do with how bold your tyres were mate (as seen at Janspeed - just a thought ) - none the less, glad you're safe and sound and have some new rubber on order...
