Ah bugger, what is the story there?
That was my initial suspicion but there was about 1/2" hole in the tread and a 2" tear in the sidewall when I first pulled up. Tire was warmer than the other 3 but going flat with 19,000 # truck rubbing you into the road will do that.It sounds to me like freeway speed + military-design tires + 100 degree weather caused the tire to overheat.
And I want to know how you got the tire on top of the cab. :-]And after a few more hours swapping things around in the 100 plus weather it now looks like this.
