    In the slow-mo it looked like the tire at least wasn’t being run low on air.

    I watched it again. It’s a tread seperation. You can see the wheel assembly bouncing before the rupture.

    That's good looking out on the truckers part. He saw that tire going before it went.

    I’ve never had a front tire blow on any pickup or passenger vehicle that I’ve owned.

    Do they lose control like that pickup in the video like the big trucks do?

    Best way to avoid total loss of control in a steer blowout is hammer the throttle and accel so it lifts the weight off the front.

    That is why running on the governor or max cruise control is unsafe.

    Anytime someone passes me or I pass and hear a tire thumping or see it bouncing I back out or accel past.
