    Looks like an advertisement for Firestone 500s…

    Maybe they should avoid hitting curbs, this is not caused by an alignment issue.

      Yep, broken belts. Probably saw the tread was still there so decided to keep on going. I imagine the steering wheel shook pretty bad.

      I think you are right. Bought an older pickup for one of my kids and it had a set of cheap Montgomery Ward house brand tires made by Firestone. One had a broken belt and the kid could barely keep it on the road at low speeds on city streets. Chucked all 4 of ’em and put on a set of mid-range Goodyears and got good mileage out of that set.

    Appears it got em there.

    I had one that looked like that. Radial tire used on one side of the car. Saved as a spare when I bought a new set of tires. Then used on the other side of the car. Messed it up quickly.

    Time to jack up the gas cap and run a new jalopy under it.

      Have not heard that saying in a couple of coons ages. Used it a lot in the 70s.

    When the air is showing you got your money’s worth.

    The rubber on that tire looks really old and dry rotted. This is an extreme example of why they say not to run tires older than 5 years old, no matter how good the tread is.

      I have a 2000 Chevrolet pickup. After I had a flat, I realized I had the same original spare. I took the best of the old and dumped it last year when I replaced all four tires.

    … looking at that picture, your first clue would be?

  13. Butch says:

    That tire should be saved until the next earth day when the owner can burn it to honor the earth mommy…whatz her name? Gila, Gia, Gupta?….something like that

Play nice.
