These Germans Have Set A New Guinness World Record For The Fastest Wheel Change On A Car

Gerard June 5, 2015 08:28

So you’ve got a flat tyre, how long do you think it will take to change the wheel with the tyre iron in the boot of the car? Five minutes? Ten?

Well, for a German auto company known as Kfzteile24, their team of four has managed to set a new Guinness World Record for the fastest wheel change on a car by swapping out all four of them in a blistering 59.62 seconds.

In accordance with the rules of the record bid, they are only allowed hand tools and their own healthy supply of elbow grease. That means just a hand-operated car jack and tyre irons, no electric tools are allowed here.

The previous record, which had previously stood at 1 minutes and 23.85 seconds by another German team has now been officially smashed.

Think you and your buddies can beat that record? Only one way to find out.

About Gerard

My first impressions of a dream car should be a ridiculous top speed with physics defying cornering capabilities, namely the Ferraris, Paganis and what not. Deep down, I just want something that makes you feel special when you drive it, expensive or not.
