Tires are present on every Vehicle in Shattered. Using the bullet power, James Derettas can shoot tires on a vehicle and pop them. Vehicles with popped tires can still move, but they become noticeably harder to control due to the lack of friction. This is a good strategy when trying to take down a vehicle: aim for the tires if you can't take down the vehicle or driver easily.

- The tougher or bigger a vehicle is, the more hits it will take to pop the tire. For example, tires on a sports car or taxi take only one direct bullet hit to pop, whereas armored cars, vans and bigger trucks take 3-5 hits.
- Before rubber was developed, the first versions of tires were simply bands of metal that fit around wooden wheels to prevent wear and tear. Early rubber tires were solid, not pneumatic.
