After you get your wheel cylinders fixed make sure you get your blinker fluid filled up!

No, The brake WHEEL CYLINDERs wont cause you to pop a tire, just make a mess and cause loss of braking. So get that fixed.

And I'm sure your blinker fluid level is just fine....now your headlight fluid on the other hand, well think about it, your headlights are on so much more often! And don't skimp, get the good halogen fluid.

Check your Vtec fluid, u gota make sure its the brown stuff not the green stuff. the extra torque from the lobes engaging at the wrong rpm mite be spinning the tire off the bead...

O wait which forum am I on? This sounds like all to familiar of a question. Sorry hada jump on the bandwagon

since it appears that most of the people on this site are 12...


describe "popped". is there a gash on the tire like its rubbing something, or are you just driving on the wrong roads.

i doubt it because retreads are illegal on passenger vehicles in the US.

yeah I thought of that but I wanted to give the mexicans the benefit of the doubt. If its socal the truck could have been brought across the border too.
