Watch: This is what happens inside your car’s tires when you drive around

first_img In this episode, sparked by a viewer question, the Chicago-based artist mounted a GoPro with a light and an external battery pack inside the tire of his Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG, first up front and then in the rear. The video displays visually and audibly what it’s like from the rim’s perspective as the tire is mounted and inflated, and then how it deforms as it rolls along the alleys and roads of Chicago and around a few corners. The larger bumps and contours on the surface cause the tire to dent in, absorbing shocks for the driver above as they do so. When the Mercedes hits a corner at speed, the rubber flexes violently as the tire skips across the pavement. Interestingly, when the tire is deflated at the very end of the video, it creates something of a mist effect inside.

Now, if you want your day of watching random video footage of things like life inside a tire to be over, definitely don’t click on Warped Perception’s other popular videos, like this one of a German shepherd bolting into action from prone, filmed in super slow-motion. Don’t do it.  The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail may be the most expensive new car ever I’ll admit this wasn’t a headline I thought I’d be writing today, or ever. But here it is, a story about a video shot from the inside of a tire. And, strangely, I’m into it. Nerd recognize nerd, I guess. Not that the host of YouTube’s Warped Perception is a nerd, but actively exploring the space between tire and wheel is undeniably a nerdy pursuit. The channel’s MO is to get up close with the “random things you see and use in everyday life, often debunking myths, satisfying curiosities and exposing just how things work that are difficult to see or replicate for most of us.” Trending in Canadacenter_img PlayThe Rolls-Royce Boat Tail may be the most expensive new car everPlay3 common new car problems (and how to prevent them) | Maintenance Advice | Driving.caPlayFinal 5 Minivan Contenders | Driving.caPlay2021 Volvo XC90 Recharge | Ministry of Interior Affairs | Driving.caPlayThe 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning is a new take on Canada’s fave truck | Driving.caPlayBuying a used Toyota Tundra?
