I heard a loud pop coming from the driveway where Anna was hauling firewood and knew some sort of tire mishap had occurred.

I think they sell these replacement wheels at the big box stores, or maybe we'll get lucky and our tire guy will work another rubber miracle by bringing it back to a functional life for a small fee?
