This photo was sent to us from one of our customer’s. He had a 62 mph blowout on a freeway in Oakland. Luckily, he had taken a class on how to handle a steer tire blowout and stopped safely.
He had gone to a truck stop to weigh his axles to ensure that they were within the specs. They were. He divided the axle weights in half to determine proper tire inflation. What he didn’t know was that the right front had significantly more weight on it than the left front. The result was an under inflated right front tire.
