    Flat tire?

    Found in Vancouver. The N beside the license plate indicates a novice driver. I’m assuming the driver got a flat and simply removed the wheel to go get it fixed, but who knows, perhaps it fell off. Couldn’t even be bothered to move it forward a couple of metres to not block the intersection. Smiley

    Looks like the bolts are broken off.

    Guess it just fell off. Maybe a tech forgot to tighten the bolts.

    2500 EUR instead of 1200 EUR (set of four for my former R8 for example). Smiley

    That's part of McLaren's heritage.  Consider in 2018, when Alonzo's F1 car lost its right rear tire.   https://www.foxsports.com/motor/story/red-bull-s-ricciardo-fastest-on-f1-s-first-day-of-testing-022618

     


    Re: Flat tire?

    Possibly. The car is approximately 8 blocks away from the dealership. Or a little over-steer + curb = broke wheel off? Regardless of scenario, strange that its perfectly centered in the lane. 

    While I'm not sensitive to the N on expensive cars thing, the image above shows a G63 with an N on it too. Haha.
