I'm curious....how much was the tow?

i ran a set of (rear) tires 7+ yrs beyond the mfg production date, they never showed any signs of (vertical) fracturing and i had 10s of 1000s of miles on 'em...I can't remember if the rears were BFG or GoodYears.

I had a set of Michelins on the steers that were 1/2 the age that showed vertical fractures that i replaced.

I treat our tires with 303 UV Protectant (and RARELY) cover our tires, that said we are in covered storage.

I'm curious why they couldn't just fix you on the road? Did the tire cause other damage that disabled the truck?

"I" was a dumb ass !

They were to old and "I" said they would be ok ! All 6. Not !

At about 100 miles up the hill to Flagstaff, poof ! No tire.

I'm not going to tell you how old by ? DUMB, ASS !

The tow was $$$$.

Could have gone with a tire change but ? Their all the same age.

Went with just, tow to the tire dealer and in the AM change out all 6.

Been working on a "T" square system for my table saw. Need the doors to be nice !



But have a quest. Getting some flak from the Wife about needing "TWO" big trucks. The Semi and my LMTV/M1078.

Finish the International / RV and sell it or sell the LMTV ?

Thanks for the input !
