    Let the illegals stay - at least the ones that want to work. Deport the socialists who don't...

    That sucks. It's amazing the damage a blown tire can do. How old are those tires?

    That is really bad sorry it happened. That is why I wish we could just but cord type tires. More than once seen radial tires create damage. Had one on the front of my F350 dually come apart took out the inner finder guard and bent up finder at rocker section and up towards the bumper. Got the body hammer and fixed the dint's but paid dearly for that inner finder piece of plastic. Also glad your ok and now one was hurt. Well theirs another project for you even though you did not expect it. Oh yes what was the brand of tire it looks like copper is that rite. Russ. Dag nabit it is always something!!!!

    That is a horrible sound to hear at 70mph. It sounds like the whole car is coming apart. I hope you have a good insurance company.

    OUCH! That does suck.
    I just bought a set of Cooper Cobra Radial GTs' because I had a BF Goodrich Radial separate a belt, but at least the tread stayed on. Please tell me those where REAL old.
