Tires let go with no warning they are very secretive untill they decide to tell the truth

On a tandem dually I would be running Michelin XPS Rib or Bridgestone Duravis M895 or Toyo M54.

Total bummer, thank God it was on the right side, it's even worse when it's on the left side right next to traffic.

Chris don't stop on the highway unless its a truck tire. I'll slow down but the hell with pulling over on the interstate. I did that once and about pissed on myself when a tractor trailer came screaming by.
