Anybody seen anything in the rules to cover this? They do say what happens if you can't take any more damage, but not if you have no tyres left. Obvious rule is crash out if you have to lose tyres and don't have any, but you could force a car with no tyres to make a pit stop...

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.

Being second is to be the first of the ones who lose.

I think somewhere in the rules it is written that you cannot use a card if you cannot pay the indicated resources. That's what happens when you have no tyres left. You cannot move using cards that require you to pay tyres.
I have seen players running 2-3 turns with no tyres just to trying to make it into the pit or to the finish line at the right time. You are very limited in the cards you can play when you are without tyres and usually start loosing ground to those who come from behind. Generally it is not a great idea to stay on the track with no tyres, but in certain particular cases those 2-3 turns of resistance can be critical to your overall race.
Nevertheless to say, if you have the Save Tyres strategy, at least you can play the pay-one-tyre cards...
