A Perth woman will face court for allegedly driving without a front wheel after a bystander seized her keys.

The 31-year-old Harrisdale woman was seen driving "recklessly" in Byford last month with the driver's side wheel of her Holden Captiva worn down to the brake caliper, police allege.

The 31-year-old woman was intercepted by a concerned member of the public who reported seeing sparks fly off the car.

Police say sparks and debris were reportedly coming off the vehicle, which came to a stop at an intersection at which time the bystander seized the woman's keys and called police.

Upon their arrival, the woman was breathalysed, where she allegedly reported a reading of more than .008.

The woman will now appear before the courts and has had her license disqualified.
