Road Hazards

I am no longer the road hazard. A couple weeks ago I did a walk around my truck. I don't know what posessed me to take a look at everything. Oh lordy, I've never let my tires get this bad before. I've been driving white knuckled and in the right lane in case of a blow-out ever since I saw this.
This is the most uneven wear I've seen in forever. And the outside edge is down to NO tread. Every time I got onto the freeway I felt the liability of it all.

Today, today finally, I had two new tires put on the truck. Idle arm (the reason for the crazy wear on this tread) replacement is next week. One thing at a time...


  1. Yeah, tie rods and idler arms will do that, but I don't think you were in imminent danger as far as the tire goes (or went). It's good to get steering pieces replaced before they fall off, though. And they will.

  2. Good to see you are being safe. We sure cant let anything bad happen to ya we all love ya too much! Hope you have a wonderful weekend

  3. If only we'd get another ice age situation, then we could just use skids and toss the tires into the local landfill. Get the tools parts lift and a place to work and I know someone who'll put it all on.
    Or you could just let someone who has all that get it out of the way. In either case the truck will drive noticeably better. Got to. It must be a little squirrelly at times.

  4. Squirrelly...that's the word! Now you guys are scaring me....back to the bus for me.
