What happens when you fill your car’s tires with water?


You certainly won’t want to go on a road trip like that

Under normal driving, having two rear (driving) wheels filled with water apparently only makes the car feel more sluggish and less agile, which is normal because you seriously increase the unsprung mass.

That's pretty much it – n0thing catastrophic happens – but they do decide to finish off the two water-filled tires in style, so let the burnout until they burst commence.
