    But what would happen if the tire was spinning? Would it get stuck or bounce off?

    I never expected a pass-through. Interesting.

    Vectors. The effective angle of impact would be the vector resolution of the movement of the arrow and the tire. Whatever the detailed result based on specific angle and speed, that tire is going DOWN.
    For those that saw the old OK hunter safety archery film, an arrow can penetrate a metal water bucket full of sand, which would stop a 30/06 bullet.

    Odd the "garden variety" M1 Garand had a M2 flash hider. It was well known by the early 1960s that the M2 flash hider, especially if loose, negatively affected accuracy.
