We do not know what these wires went to. Can anyone help. I will try to attach a picture in my next post.
If you have voltmeter you can test to see which wires if any are hot. Sometimes wire color can help identify which if any are ground and the VOM should be able to confirm if 120v or 12V. Be careful. Start with everything shut off and have assistant turn on one item at a time.
RE tire failure. Have you read the thread "Why Tires Fail
I know your current question is about the wires but preventing failure in the first place is a good idea. And if you don't know why the tire failed you may not be able to prevent a recurrence.
How did you discover the failure? If you don't have TPMS ( I am assuming you don't) there is no way to know how many miles you drove with the one tire loosing air which means you were overloading its mate and may have done serious structural damage to it. It needs to be dismounted and you need tire dealer to inspect and pronounce it OK IN WRITING.
Is the P/U a FORD? A Ford dealer should be able to ID the wires.
