There are some dangerous scenarios that could play out if one decides to venture into driving a car without air in the tyres.
Continuing to drive your car without adequate air in the tyres could prove to be quite costly. Now, you must’ve driven the vehicle with a flat tyre many times. However, that must’ve been temporary until you get to the mechanic to change the tyre or fix the puncture. But have you wondered what could happen if you drive on a tyre with no air at all? Here is a video that captures the consequences.

Don’t Drive Car Without Air In The Tyres
The video has been uploaded by a famous YouTuber on his channel. He keeps experimenting with unique stuff to test the extremes. However, he mentions at the start of the video that no one should try to imitate such activities. These could not only be dangerous to your health but also have long term effects on your car. After that, he begins the video by deflating the front tyre of his Mahindra Scorpio. He waits until the entire air escapes the tyre and then starts driving it. In the beginning, there is a noise from the tyres while driving. It gets louder as more distance is being covered.
The YouTuber also driver quite roughly on surfaces with no tarmac. This includes potholes, dirt tracks, etc. After a while, the rubber of the tyre is completely worn off and the Scorpio is being driven directly on the rim. That is when the steering got quite heavy and the SUV begins sinking in the potholes. It is tilted to one side and the noise becomes louder. Finally, the camera records the tyre being melted due to the excess heat being produced from the rim running on the road. The temperature rises extremely and the sidewalls of the tyre are completely melted.
