I run mainly 11 western, as yall know everything from Texas on west to CA has been baked in a heatwave, today this awaited me on my post trip.....almost done at the shop, ready to roll tommorrow, no early AM shock or missed deadlines , straight to the customer with me.

All I will say is she weren't like that on the pretrip and it only took 519 miles today for it to end up looking like that!

Moe,

Not sure why it didn't, as I've seen you've uploaded before.

I know Brett is actively making SO many upgrades & improvements to this site, but.. pretty sure nothing much has changed in that venue.. not to my knowledge, anyway!

Here's a quick 'refresher' course; no dis at ALL. Love to see your conundrum via photo(s!) ~

Bottom right, tutorial!

Our main page, & Brett's Vimeo on posting links, photos, in the bottom right grid.

(I'll check in the a.m.; I'm always cheering you on, man. Always. Glad you've gotten thus far!)

ps: "Nite ranger?" Should be my substitulado, hahaha!!! ;)

Is that what recapped tires do ?

Sheesh...

Thanks for sharing that with us Moe!

You are right about needing to check things over. Some really weird things can happen out on the road. Here's a tire that I noticed once at the end of my day. It was still holding pressure and riding well. Just being satisfied to beat it with a hammer and listen to the ring of the tire would never have shown me this lurking problem. I never was sure exactly what this was, but somehow I got a cold chisel or a steel spike of some sort inserted right into and through my tire. The location of it kept it from causing the tire to leak.

I'm guessing it happened sometime after I hit the hot hot areas of Utah and Nevada. My day started in a rest area off I70W in CO and took me through CO, UT and NV. It was pretty hot yesterday in both UT and NV. This is a recapped trailer tire. The shop tech mentioned he has been seeing alot of this type of thing this year due to the high temperatures.

I cant wait for the fall, I'm over the heat.

Anyway, 600 am delivery for me then back to Oregon, Klamath falls for a Saturday drop,picking up a load in Tracy for that, so bed time now up at 330 to 4.

Holy CRAPOLY!
