Blew a tire the other day...


Recommended Posts

Plenty of tread left, but the date code is 5006 so I guess it's time to replace the old Michelins. This happened at 75mph, and fortunately the lady tailgating me in the Miata with the top down didn't get behind me for several miles. :o


Ripped the trailer wiring adapter out of the taillight harness and a piece of the tire came up and cracked the lens pretty good. Fender is salvageable but only with a lot of work. Rest of the bed will need lots of hammering to make right. If anybody in central Florida has a line on a decent dually bed for a good price, I'm listening!

You can kind of see some dry rot in the good tire next to the blown one. Does look like time to throw some new ones on there. Never fun to blow tires!! We blew the entire dually fender off my dads '89 chevy one time. Had the camper on and going down the freeway. Not good.
