    Soooooo, I stop at the weigh station like a good little boy but they go by, ticks me off. Anyway, sitting at the light I look over and oh well hello there! I assume they aren't not aware of the tire but my phone was dead so I couldn't call the county boys to pull them over. I assume the tire lost its tread while going down the road. The trailer has about 8 steers* in it. Thats sad, I grew up on a beef cattle farm and don't remember how to spell that.......oh well.

    The shiny part is the metal bands. Hope they made it!

    That tire's good for a few upstate ny winters. Put 4 of them babies on and go get some plow accounts, now we're in business. Thats how you keep costs down. LOL!

    here in tn that's farm use and doesn't require ANY gov't regulations. Doesn't even have to have commercial tags, brakes or brake lights for that matter. as long as it is farm use, anything goes.

    WoW!! is that my father in-law...just kidding, however he did haul 40 yearlings to market (2 or 3 trips) to town with the ball loose on his truck (the hole was wallerd out and the stem on the ball was bent) no safety chains, no trailer brakes, no lights, no kidding. If that was me, the damn would have come off careening into a bus load of kids....gaurenteed!

    Oh that little bit of dirt on the hubcap ain't never hurt nobody.

    The worst is when that rubber comes off and goes flying across the highway, one reason to keep a good distance from the big rigs.
