Officers spotted the BMW X5 missing one front and one back wheel moments before it crashed into a barrier on the M42 Southbound on Sunday morning.
The flash motor was being driven by a 24-year-old man who was quickly arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving, driving while disqualified and failing to provide a specimen.
Cops from the Central Motorway Policing Group who handled the incident took to social media to warn other motorists about the bizarre incident.
CMPG tweeted: "An interesting start to our first shift back.
"Driver on the M42 south decided to drive his X5 without a front wheel… Followed by no back wheel and was still trying to drive when we arrived!
"Driver arrested for drink driving."
And incredibly, the roadway rozzers came across another man driving with missing wheels just a few hours later.
The 35-year-old motorist was safely brought to a stop and arrested on suspicion of drink-driving and dangerous driving.
They wrote: "You really couldn't make it up!
"Yet another drink driver deciding to drive without a tyre [on] the rim. This time though urban roads with some very near misses.
"Driver very intoxicated and is off to custody."
CMPG ended their tweet with the hashtags "unbelievable" and "Fatalfour" – a reference to the four most common causes of road traffic accidents: inappropriate speed, using a mobile phone while driving, not wearing a seatbelt, and driving under the influence.
