    Ya'll sure this is the business to be in? I think tire sales might be more profitable!

    I WISH I had that problem. I got t-boned right in the middle of my front bumper Friday (5-11) morning by a jap car. All she did was bend up the front bumper but her car didn't fair so well.

    I remember an employee returning to my home with a tire on the tandem that was completely shredded, nothing left but a 2" bead, on each side of rim. no tread, sidewall. he was on gravel at first, and said he didn't notice, and then went to first jobsite. The tire shop had to cut the rings off with an acetylene torch ! Dave :mad:
