    I run 2 dually trucks and 1 single axle, 3 tandem trailers 2 single axle trailers, 2 ztrs, 1 bobcat skid steer. I average between 1k to 2k a year in tires. This year 1 rear ztr at 120 bucks. Knock on WOOD. Would say 1 dually back tires are getting thin. Calling them my indian tires they leave no tracks!

    You bought a brand new tire because of a screw?

    I have put plugs in sidewalls. Really not like a auto where there is a big risk if it fails. Plug and then slime

    Welcome to the world of business. If you think 3 tires in 2 weeks is bad we just changed tires on our dump truck, mowing trailer, landscape trailer, and a equipment trailer. 18 tires this month. 3 In 2 weeks I could deal with

    I had a screw in sidewall of a Michelin Primacy (car tire). I put a plug and everything was fine. Oh, and keep tire with plug on rear wheel only. Easier on the tire...

    That's a really bad idea.
