Sorry to hear that. Do you think it had lost pressure and got hot or was it just a freak defect? It looked like it was a pretty good tire. It was a futura Super sport from Pep Boys right?

there was a time when tire actually started to "look" worn before they gave you problems.
Now a days tires that are showing little to no wear just come a part........

.....Wookee

well today i put the front end up on jack stands, removed the wheels, took apart the brakes to clean them and to de-glaze the pads and rotors. then put everything back together. i can tell you i have one hell of a headache from the sun. but yep just checked the brakes, van doesn't brake well and it's pissing me off. and the dam van is so sensitive to road imperfections but of course all my bushings are all cracking and I can't replace anything because the hardware is all frozen and if i remove it then snap so until i get some dough to fix it im going to have to settle for a crappy drive.

Spent the day over at Darrin (Vanatic05)'s house with the van up on the lift replacing the oil pump, and pan gasket and a fresh oil change. Felt so good to blast some Foghat and nail it on the interstate back. Love it!
