I have yet another blown drive tire, this is like the third time in two months almost. Maybe I'm doing something wrong? confused.gif

I was driving down I-35 East in Kansas, listening to music then the next thing out of no where "BOOM", scared the hell out of me. So I pulled over to see what it was, didn't notice anything. So I started to go again after checking my tires. I stopped a second time because I didn't feel right, as it was a loud sound to be nothing. Again, checked all the tires and didn't notice anything wrong. It wasn't until I stopped a third time, because shortly after taking off again, it sounded really odd and a small amount of vibration. So I pulled over, checked other things, the trailer and truck. I came along the passenger side and behold I noticed my outter front axle drive tire blew out.

It was weird, because I hit it with my little hammer I have to help check and felt it two times before this. But it wasn't until the third time it was actually blown. Then what the heck did I hear? rofl-3.gif

Did you **** off the rubber duck, he might be after you😂🤣😁

I'm curious as to what PSI your hammer told you the tire was at?

Of course it's not used to determine the PSI of the tires but to quickly see if it's low, as it'll make a different sound and the way it bounces back. But I do need to buy a tire gauge!

Nonetheless it was really weird as the tire didn't seem to be blown the first two times I stopped and checked them and inspected. But the third time, you could visually see it blown. But I heard the sound of it blowing right before the first time.
