Close call!

I spotted this tire going bad just before getting back on the LA freeways for my return to Texas. The thing I noticed as we were loading up was the tire was domed across the tread, not flat like the others. After removing it I could see the separation, the tread misalignment, and the wires sticking out. Perhaps 10k on the tire.

It must have then vaporized because we can't see anything!

Opps! It helps if I actually post the picture. Castle Rock, of course.

Wasn't Castle Rock a Stephen King thing? lol, glad nothing bad happened to you. And glad they put Westlakes on my rig, not hearing so many bad things about them since they got sued a ways back.
