Check out this picture of the main gear of the A330 which made a no-engine landing in the Azores. Can you imagine the spectacular shower of sparks as the wheels were actually ground down?

I think I read somewhere that the tires actually *exploded* (not only burst) at the moment when it hit terra firma. Anyway, of course it's gonna be a hard landing. They can't control the sink rate as they do when the engines are still working.
