However, the biggest rebuttal to Loomer’s story was yet to come. One user by the name of Mike, clearly experienced in the ways of rotten and slashed tires, took it upon himself to clinically dissect Loomer’s original tweet and pictures. And, in the process, he arguably blew her narrative wide open.
Mike began by pointing out that the tire hadn’t suffered a puncture or, indeed, anything of the sort. However, the pictures did show evidence of an impact blowout. He highlighted a mark on the wheel: a place, Mike suggested, where it had clearly hit a pothole or curb.
