Think it hot in Texas?

This afternoon in 102 degree temps my spare tire that was in its rear carrier blew out. I would never have guessed the temps inside the would get hot enough to cause a tire to blow. The first week of May I replaced both front tires and had the best of the old tires put up for a spare so it was not a dry rotted tire just got too hot!

As U.S. General Phillip Sheridan commented: "If I owned Hell and Texas, I would live in Hell and rent out Texas."

Without the invention of AC, the state would still be uninhabited.

It gets up to 115-118 degrees in the Arizona desert areas, and spare tires should not blowup even at these temperatures. If your spare exploded, it was probably defective.

I had both my feet stick to the blacktop highway at a stop light in Little Rock Arkansas in August of 1995.

Click on the link to see a picture of the Sioux River falls near my home.
Eastern South Dakota is very pretty with hills, rivers, and trees.
