Over the weekend I saw a real jerk-of-a-stick spear through a nice tire. I then said to myself, I bet this is not that uncommon. Show me your destroyed tires caused by unlikely situations! Show me your abused, beaten, and neglected tires! Bring me the worst of the worst, and the best of the best! If you post up a link that fits the bill, I’ll get it up here for the world to see!
Bonus Flat Tire Info: It is widely accepted that one of the most common cause of flat tires, is under-inflated tires. Seems dumb right?“Ok, so my tire was flat and caused my tire to be flat? What? Am I being punk’d?”….Well, yes. People never check their tire pressures (or oil, antifreeze, brakes, etc, etc, don’t get me started!). Over time, the wheels corrode, valve stems deteriorate, temperatures change, and planets align causing tires to lose a teeeeeny tiny little bit of air pressure every once in a great while. Time passes and pretty soon, you are getting awful gas mileage and wearing out the sidewalls of your tires because they are not meant to be driven on. Duh. the sidewalls then blow out in grand fashion, leaving you surprised on the side of the road. “What?! I can’t believe this happened!?!? I remember checking the pressure in 1994, and it was perfect!!!? What happened??”
