Photos: "New" tire explodes as pick-up overturns in Pathum Thani




Images from a dash cam of a following vehicle caught the moment when a Ford Ranger pick-up collided with a central reservation pole and turned onto its side yesterday.


The accident happened in the Klong Luang district of Rangsit, Pathum Thani north of Bangkok.


Driver Supanya Rat-Or, 35, from Mahasarakham province had to be cut free from his cab.




Before he was taken to Bang Pakork Rangsit 2 hospital was able to tell Thai Rath reporters at the scene that his vehicle suffered a blow out on a front tire causing him to lose control.


He said that he had just changed his old tires for new ones.

Why does he need new tyres,he's on a red plate,so truck

You were quicker :smile:

Something fishy about this new tire story.

And why has the author put it in quotes ("new")?

The tires in the back look brandnew indeed.

how did he do this if he was driving at the speed limit, this only happens when you are travelling fairly fast and suffer a blow out. Also dont those tyres seem a bit narrow for a new  ranger tyres, has he swapped(sold) the original tyres and stuck "treads" on to make some money, something certainly doesnt add up here

He has changed his Tyres and they are not the originals; they have a fetish here for 'changing wheels'.    Morons don't realise when you do that with a brand new vehicle you are killing the warranty stone dead.
