Changing tires while moving – Click above to watch video after the jump

Can you change a tire quickly? It doesn't matter, because your skills fail to impress this crew of suicidal Saudi stunt drivers. No need for a jackstand when you have three friends, a long stretch of road and the ability to pilot a vehicle like one of the Duke boys.

While this stunt takes a lot of skill, and cojones far outweighing the curb weight of the vehicle involved, we checked the stupidity meter and it exploded in our hands. Click past the jump to see the most thrilling tire change you may ever witness.

      Don't you just love it how whenever someone does something awesome people jump in and scream "Fake!" I hope Svenson never gets to judge the NBA slam dunk contest, he'll give them all 0's saying that they faked it.

      Cool video, btw. Looks like it has different types of hubs than we're used to.

      I can't believe that one guy is walking around barefoot on the car. If it's real...it is impressive for sure.

      If that's what they can do with a car, imagine what they can do with a camel!

      I wanted the car to come back down. Horrible. They'd be ok though since I've seen the video of these guys surfing the road next to a car in their sandals

      Wouldn't the side wall wear out very, very quickly?

      I feel like with them climbing all over the vehicle like that, the center of gravity of the car would be changing so much that the driver would at least have to swerve a bit, which we never see. If it weren't for the camera coming around to the rear of the vehicle so we could see there was nothing supporting the truck, I would have just assumed it was fake. Still though, it just doesn't look real.

        I have a feeling they put down a 'training wheel' of some sort on the other side of the car while they worked. The car is entirely too stable over that whole video, it doesn't rock at all.

      Louie Mattar already showed that you could change a tire while still driving back in 1952 on his cross-country trip from LA to New York, although he did it much safer.

      The best part is the guy on the laptop like he's in Starbucks or something.

      I'm really getting sick of autoblogs writers/bloggers posting their unabashed opinions in their posts. I know it's a blog, but you guys are so big you're essentially just a news agency now. Let the public decide if the people involved are 'suicidal' and where the rank on the 'stupidity meter' (good one, by the way....)

        Hmm, seems you are suffering from a 404 sense of humor not found error
