Are you kidding? Nobody in their right mind would drive on these tires! Do you care about your families life and the lives of others? Park the car, remove the wheels and have new tires put on your rims.

If you have tires like that, replace them asap or just stay off the road until you have new tires. If you have to ask you're very irresponsible. No excuse to let tires go that far, very dangerous.
You are driving on borrowed time as it is. Get new tires ASAP.

I am leaning towards considering the original post a huge prank on all of us.
I had two thoughts; first was this is a joke (prank)...I mean it just can't be legit, but then seeing what some people drive around in...I wonder.
But, it sure has generated a lot of posts and good tongue in cheek.

Looks like you need some new tires. Last time the old man and I talked about "needing" new tires when we get back home, the tread came off the tire on a county hwy, 45 minutes from nearest town, on the way home. To make matter worse, the release mechanism for spare tire was broke. So we called sheriff from county we were leaving and county we were entering to find out if anyone had a tire service on a saturday afternoon. Luckily and hour and a half later, a tire service truck showed up and helped us with our problem.
Don't put if off dear friend.

Get real. Did you have nothing else to do but post such “dumbness” concerning tires? Safety is always first... could be the difference between life and death.... get the tires you obviously need.

The OP logged in and looked at this thread 2.5 days ago at 9:30 PM. She's probably either gun shy from all the trolls or has received the feedback she wanted.

The owner’s manual gives good instructions on how to watch/take care of your tires. I suggest reading it.

Maybe the OP came from a third world country and is new to car ownership. (I don’t want to explain how I know, but I am married. That’s as far as I’m willing to go)...

You don't want to go any further than marriage 😁

Oh lord no. You're from overseas and your wife over here knows more about cars than you? Ouch, the ignominy of it all I don't see how you've been able to live that down. :cry:

In all seriousness, there ain't no way no how anyone who's learned enough Western English as a second language to have been able to get as much of the spelling and grammar right, could have possibly missed 100% of the associated punctuation and capitalization rules or have been as ineffective in organizing and presenting their issues. My experience has been that those non-native English speakers learning the language are super conscientious with communications, both verbal and written.

Nope, based on combined indicators a few others noted what we have here is someone (or, someone very successfully mimicking someone) with a non-functional 'Complete Sentence App', generally sloppy lazy communications (aka 'thumber's disease'), and too much time and mischief on their hands.

This thread has outlived its initial value in guiding anyone searching anything close to the title keywords, so it only holds comic relief moving ahead.

I've been losing so much sleep over this whole issue, but after spending 1,024 giga-jewels and 56,000 newton-meters I've finally uncovered the car that those tires came off of:

That's a thermal nuclear reactor that gets the wheels moving and melts ice and snow.
