    A few miles out of Carlise, PA on route 76 East while doing 63 miles per hour, this happens. Tires are inexpensive (under $200.00) but body and trim work are brutal on the pockets. Estimated repair cost is $1114.00 and two weeks. It's amazing what a steel belt can to in the span of two seconds.

    What kind of tires are you running ? I'm going to steer clear of those suckers.

    Sorry to see your 76 get beat up :(

    That blows!!! No pun intended, really. My buddy just had the same thing happen on his T/A... Rubber stuck to the quarter, scratches, and damage to his back bumper... What kind of tires were those?

    The tire that blew out was the same as the remaining three:
    Tribune, Steel Radial, 4 Ply, made in Korea
    DOT D7HL A7Y514
    P235/75R15 105S
    The remaining three still have "nobbies" and "webs" in-between the treads.

    Since we have a breakfast to attend Saturday the 18th, 2005 I decided to clean up the spare for the trip North to Edison, NJ Yes. What you are looking at is the ORIGINAL spare!

    It's in great condition and still has the nobbies all the way around.
