There are so many questions that are unanswered here. What happened to the two right tires? Why is the driver proceeding without them? Don't they hear a scraping noise? Do they think that noise is normal? What about the diminished ride quality?

Is this sort of thing becoming an epidemic? Or does nobody care about anything anymore?

You know what, no. This rabbit hole just goes way too deep. Don't question it, just accept it.
