    [​IMG]
    /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif Scared the sh!t out of me. Was going 60 mph the truck droped down on driver rear, handle ok for what happened. (no roll over like a furd exploder owner would have done/forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif) Other then being startled and standing on the side of a highway for an half hour, my family is all ok /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Also want to get a different set of tires

    Hay-sooz, there isn't much left of the rubber. Tire failure, or did you hit something? (like a VW bug?)

    Re: 36\" Blow Out

    Dang, and those were almost brand new. /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif So, are you giving up on that set? Why looking for a whole set? Worried about the others?

    What kind of swampers were those? Radials? SSRs?

    Re: 36\" Blow Out

    Yeah a little nervouse about condition of the others, two are of the newer design TSL radials, but the other one is older like the one that blew that makes me nervous. Not sure why these blew did a little offroading Sat. nothing hard just washes and climbing. I put my MTXs tires over rougher terrain than that and not a problem with them, tires flats or anything. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif May just get a another set of MTXs or all terains, not sure what yet depends on the deals I can find.

    I lost a LH rear 35" tire once with my 4" lifted K5 and towing my 23' travel trailer at about 70 MPH. Hardly wiggled and pulled over to the side of the road with no problems.

    I just thought of another good reason to justify Hydro assist.
