    Don't be like me... I was just holding that steering wheel so tight last night, go to make a right turn, didn't realize a raised median was in the middle and bam... Ran up over it with my drivers side steer... :banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead:

    $600 tire now trash.

    I’ve been thinking about mounting a couple small flood lights to help light turns like that.

    $1422 for 2 new Michelin X line steers. Took the passenger side steer and had them swap it out on my trailer.

    Trailer tire was a Virgin Michelin... According to the Petro location I went to, they no longer give casing credits as they do not sell used tires anymore. :(

    Didn't have much of a choice on where I went for the new tires as I wasn't gonna drive too far with that steer.

    Company I'm leased to is closed weekends so I could not use the national account... Having issues logging into my OOIDA account today so couldn't get national pricing through them either!!! Probably would have been $300 or $400 cheaper...

    What can ya do? Can't blame anyone but myself.
