Icon8 B F'd G!!!!

Had a blow out today. Tore up a tire with less than 1000 miles on it.

It almost looks like the valve stem came loose and the tire shredded before I could get slowed down.

Personally I would clean the mud off it before bringing it back. But that sucks.

So was it the fault of the person who installed tire valve or just a freak accident? Either way that sucks, glad you didn't damage the truck!

Not sure. It might just be from it sitting in my bed and me piling **** on top and around it carelessly.

But yeah either way it sucks!
