Apparently it’s quite common for Europeans to switch between winter and summer tires. Well, one driver in Switzerland was changing his tires but happened to use the wrong lug nuts to secure the wheels to his car. That’s a mistake he’s never going to make again – as soon as he drove back onto the motorway, he lost all four tires simultaneously, coming to an immediate halt.
What the news article does not mention is where the tire change took place – the wording implies that this was all done on the side of the motorway.
We had been holding out for more details – or at least a photo of the car, but it looks like the story’s dead. The following unrelated video shows what the incident probably looked like.
