so, I was at a friends house, about an hour away.. and on the way home, I was doing 80-85 on the highway, about 30 minutes from home, when I went over this bridge and all of a sudden my front end started shaking like crazy.. I was like WHA?! and let off the gas. well I had a car to the right of me, being as I was in the fast lane.. I tapped the brake, and as soon as I tapped it,
the tire exploded. yes, exploded. sounded like a gun shot, and scared the #$@^ out of me.. well, it pulled my truck off to the median, where I was like
with a brick in my pants, smoke everywhere, and the fear of getting my rear end clipped. so I pulled over as far to the side as I could, till I had an opening to shoot across the highway to change the sob. at the point of being on the median side, I was pretty much in shock, and had no idea wtf was going on.. my friend drove too, and was in front of me. with my phone battery flashing, luckily I got ahold of him and told him what happened.. so 30 minutes later, he finally finds me on the right side of the highway, just chillin
seeming how my jack wouldnt work. so I waited for him to get his jack, and I went to town, because it was now 11:30, and I was super tired.. anyways, heres a picture of the damage.. oh, and thankfully, I have a new spare :D brand new wrangler gsa.
it was dark, so I didnt get any pictures at the time.
I repaired the tire with duct tape.. I think its road worthy now
heres a picture of flex with my spare on the front
and yes, I realize there are weeds in the way of showing off some awesome 2wd flex
anyways, now I have 3 different tires on my truck.. my other front tire is slight dry rotted, and might explode at any moment.. all my tires need replaced asap.. in which I'm getting 33's and soft 8's.. since the black spare makes my truck look good.. (without the rest of my explorer rims
