An Australian man has captured the moment a tyre fell off his Jeep as he drove down a dusty road.

‘That is the tyre of this f***ing car, are you kidding me,’ he said in the video.

In the footage, Mr Mulholland slowly pulled over his three-wheeled vehicle as he watched the tyre bounce off in the distance.
‘The c***’s gone! Obviously didn’t put that c*** (wheel) on properly,’ he said.
Mr Mulholland eventually found the tyre perched next to a gum tree. He shared the footage to TikTok where it quickly went viral with over 400,000 views.

Viewers flooded the comment section praising the man for his casual reaction to the potentially dangerous accident.
‘Tell me you’re Australian without telling me you’re Australian,’ one person wrote.
‘What happened Mr Drifter,’ another commented, while a third said: ‘I love how the wheel is just hopping away like a kangaroo.’
Others questioned how Mr Mulholland captured the unlikely event on camera.
Mr Mulholland said he was able to secure the wheel back on with the help of his cousin, who works at a nearby towing company.
The Tik Tok has since gone viral with over 400,000 views and more than 50,000 likes. Pictured: his escapee tyre perched against a tree 100 metres away from his 4WD
