    The pic below is the reason for it, happened last month. The tire is a nationally known brand, with no miles, it was just old. Installed it on my beater I am in the process of replacing, because I am cheap and it was free. When it let go, (it stayed aired up) the center of it was immediately 4 to 5 inches higher than normal, made for a wild ride before I got it stopped...

    If you think nobody cares, try missing a payment...

    Dry rot is the killer, never buy a tire more than 5 years old.
    I did date a chic once that had a GREAT set of rims! :shock:

    I really miss those days of the hook-under bumper jack. ALWAYS a challenge to change a tire on any type of sloped shoulder made of soft gravel. Ya learn real quick about problem solving, action and reaction, physics, and DANGER !
