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!
