What happens when you replace one of your car’s tires with 200 Lightning cables?

Jesse Hollington for iDrop News:

Have you ever wondered what would happen if you tried to use 200 Lightning cables as a tire for your car? Yeah, neither have we, but it seems that somebody has not only asked themselves this question, but decided to find out the answer, and thanks to the magic of the internet, we can all share in the experience.

YouTuber TechRax is known for exploring such off-the-wall ideas… To conduct an experiment, he took about 200 standard, brand new Apple Lightning-to-USB cables and attached them to a car’s wheel rim in place of a standard tire.

MacDailyNews Take: Yes, we’ve officially reached the summer doldrums of 2019. Rejoice!

(Don’t worry, we’ll get through this together, as we have since 2002!)


  1. That’s really a low-profile tire substitute. They’d never stay on the rim and would have near zero cushioning. Even low-profile tires are a disaster waiting to happen in NYC as the streets are so badly pocked.

  2. I started watching this stupid YouTube and realized I could hear my brain cells screaming as they died. So I stopped before anymore died of terminal induced stupidity, Just because you CAN do something completely idiotic on the Internet does not mean you HAVE to do something completely idiotic on the Internet. In the interests of my mental health, I refuse to participate.
