Just call me lucky: My Isuzu was driving funny the last couple days, a wobble in the front passenger side. I took a look yesterday morning and I was shocked. The tire was literally coming apart, and the radial steel belts were exposed and frayed. Needless to say I changed that tire out right quick. I took some photos of the stricken tire too:
I was very lucky. A blow out while driving around would have totaled the SUV, and probably me too. I’ve been thinking about getting a new car, and this is a powerful impetus to get me into the showroom.
