Blow out rear tire. Question

The wires are probably your clearance lights. The wires are routed along a rail forward of the tires. Insulation covers them up. I had a tire failure last month. Took out the wiring for the clearance lights. By the way, you may not have any clearance lights, tail lights or tag lights. If not, You will need to replace fuse #22 in the fuse box under the driver side, behind the parking brake. Mine is currently in the shop to replace the fender well. Beat it up good and opened a hole into the sub basement. Got a replacement light from Amazon. If the wires have a small clip on the end, clearance light forward of the wheel. Just get a new one and route the wire flex behind the bracket.

We do not know what these wires went to. Can anyone help. I will try to attach a picture in my next post.
Do you have tank heaters (Arctic pack)? Those wires are usually not well protected.

First thing I'd do is get rid of the valve extensions. I've had them fail on me.

Blow out rear tire. Question

The valve extenders did not cause my problem. I added them afterwards to support the new TPMS. I think I had a puncture as I had a very slight vibration in the steering wheel that I blamed on the road. I now have a TPMS that will alert me on that condition. So I installed the extenders to make tire checking easier. Had all of this on a get list, just pushed the purchase to the top. At the next tire replacement, I will look into the all metal, longer valve stems.
