Almost home (8 miles to go) and good samaritan honking his horn pulls up next to us telling me I've got a flat.
Pulled over and the front tire is shredded and has pretty much buffed the rear tirebald.
Besides the obvious (it had to have been going on for a while and people had to be dodging debris but didn't feel it was worth their time to try and let me know) I never felt anything odd and the rear tire really did a great job of holding all that weight.
A minor bit of sheet metal bent (straightened by hand) and changed the tire by the side of the road-we were very lucky! My eyes are always watching the mirrors but I didn't see anything while running down the raod to indicate we were leaving a trail.
I remember seeing something about wireless valve covers that would send a signal when the psi was out of tolerance-has anyone tried these? I sure would like to catch a flat as soon as it goes-this could have been a whole lot worse-like had the rear gone instead and didn't have another tire behind it to buffer the shrapnel
