Non-Marathon Separation

I just had a major tire problem with a tire that is NOT a GYM. Ugly huh? I made the last three miles home on it.

Maybe you should have checked the tire pressure before the trip. And centramatics would have CERTAINLY prevented this from happening.

The data set is too small to determine if this is a manufacturing defect, or if you may have damaged the tire by running over a cattle grate at high speed.

But on the basis of this sample the failure rate is 100%. Switch to a different brand.

Nitrogen

If it would have had Nitrogen in the tire it would have ran cooler thus stopping heat from severly damaging the tire....

If he had run helium, he could have inhaled what remained and talked with a squeeky voice! Fun, fun, fun. Lol
